Power Automate - Affirmation messages with Flic and the Twilio connector

In this video you will learn how to setup a Twilio account, provision a phone number, and combine this with Flic and Power Automate to create an affirmation messaging system. You will also learn about the HTTP connector and the Parse JSON action. The result is this fun application of technology to deal with the everyday tensions in life. However, you can apply this to any areas of the enterprise, i.e., to create an emergency alert system or a company wide notification system.
