$password = "Auth Token";
$auth = base64_encode( $username . ':' . $password );
$args = [
  'headers' => [
    'Authorization' => "Basic $auth",
    'Content-Type'  => 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded;charset=UTF-8',
  ],
  'body'    => [
    "Body" => 'Testing twilio message body',
    "To"   => "Receiver Mobile Number",
    "From" => "Twillio Register Mobile Number",
  ],
];       
  
$response      = wp_remote_post( 'https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts//Messages.json', $args );
$response_body = wp_remote_retrieve_body( $response );
