curling twilio API

Hi Jose,

Off the top of my head, this would probably look something like the  
following in LC:

post tPostString to  

Where tPostString contains the post fields concatenated by & (for the  
example you posted):

To=5034554562&From=+1212022183&Body=test message

You can just sidestep this whole thing if you're on OSX/Linux by accessing  
curl directly with shell():

get shell("curl -X POST   
--data-urlencode 'To=5034554562' --data-urlencode 'From=+1212022183'  
--data-urlencode 'Body=test message' -u  

I would also strongly advise against posting your API keys publicly and  
recommend you change the one you just posted, as there are bots which  
crawl the public-facing web for such keys.
