Create, update, delete, and query SMS and MMS Messages in Twilio.


Twilio allows only a small subset of columns to be used in the WHERE clause of a SELECT query. These columns can typically be used with only the equals or = comparison. The available columns for Messages are Sender, To, DateSent, and Sid. DateSent may be used with the >, >=, <, <=, or = conditions.

SELECT * FROM Messages WHERE Sid = 'MS123456789' AND DateSent > '2015-10-10' 


To add a Message, specify Body, MediaUrl, or both, and To. At least one of the following conditional parameters must also be included: MessagingServiceSid or Sender.

INSERT INTO Messages (To, Sender, Body) VALUES ('+12345678965', '+12019493653', 'Hi!') 

INSERT INTO Messages (To, Sender, MediaUrl) VALUES ('+12345678965', '+12019493653', 'http://www.mycompany.com/ui/img/logo.png') 
Note: Up to 10 MediaUrl can be added per message as comma-separated-values.
INSERT INTO Messages (To, Sender, Body, MediaUrl) VALUES ('+12345678965', '+12019493653', 'Hi again!', 'http://www.mycompany.com/ui/img/logo.png, http://www.mycompany.com/ui/img/logo2.png')


To update a Message record, the Body column must be empty.

UPDATE Messages SET Body = "" WHERE Sid = 'M1233455'


Messages cannot be deleted if the status is sending.
DELETE FROM Messages WHERE Sid = 'M123456789'
