Twilio and Stripe have arguably pioneered B2D sales, and both are on the forefront of scaling the channel. But just how big is Twilio? They just reached 560,000 developers and are growing ARR by $1MM every 7 days.
Below is Twilio’s reported developer base over time. It took Twilio 5.5 years to reach 100k developers, 1 year to reach 200k, another 1 year to reach 400k, and just 5 months to reach 560k.
Note: This is the first of what I hope will become an ongoing series of aggregating public KPIs to assess traction.
