mass-text: send an SMS to several recipients

mass-text is an App Engine-hosted Twilio frontend for sending large quantities of a single message to several recipients.

This app was whipped up in a weekend; it's not pretty, it's not robust, it's not anything but barely functional.


To set up your own app:

  1. Create a Google App Engine app.
  2. Update app.yaml to point to your new app id.
  3. Update the LOCALHOST parameter in main.py to point to your app. (Like I said, it's not pretty.)
  4. Deploy and enjoy.

To use:

  1. Create a Twilio account.
  2. Visit the main page of your newly-deployed app.
  3. Follow the (admittedly spare) instructions.

This app requires a dedicated Twilio phone number for use. Incoming texts and phone calls are responded to automatically with a message you set when creating your account on this app.


  1. Can only send a message to 5000 recipients at a time.
  2. There are probably bugs. Woo!


If you make changes to this app, let me know!
