Hola-- this is Jarod the maker here. I'm a developer at Twilio from San Diego and I decided late one night to build the Good News bot so that I could get some good news texted to me whenever I needed it. I wrote a quick post for Twilio with some code, Crocodile Dundee and cute pictures... you can read it here: Full code here:

@jreyesdesign Hey Jarod, couldn't authenticate although I received the code. Works in Hong Kong?

@jreyesdesign can I receive good news in Messenger or Telegram? and can I choose the topics - for example good news in tech or about traveling?

@mikhail_ezhov yeah, surprised this is on SMS only.
Jarod ReyesMaker@jreyesdesign · Team 37 at
@chrismessina @mikhail_ezhov Great ideas on both counts! Will add ASAP.

@jreyesdesign @chrismessina thanks a lot! also I mistakenly typed "Good News" in verification field and it passed, but the verification code I received latter was another..

is it possible to use it on messenger/hangouts/telegram/whatsapp instead of normal SMS?
