Due to lack of inspiration, we thought about tackling one of the most annoying things that can happen pretty often, especially in the UK - NO MOBILE INTERNET CONNECTION (but access to sms/regular gsm voice calls)

What it does

Make some of the simple Internet services available via sms

How we built it

With the struggle of python/flask/heroku and a little help of some APIs

Challenges we ran into

AWS - Flask integration and lot of tiredness because of the side challenges

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We made it happen in such a short time

What we learned

We learned a lot from security challenge (aka. check all the possibilities) and the importance of APIs

What's next for py-twy

Take it one step further and bring more of social media to users that don't have internet connectivity, mainly through the use of Twilio's SMS API
