Ever been RickRoll’d by telegram?

In what was quite certainly one of yesterday’s more complicated (sophisticated?) April Fool’s gags, the folks at Twilio rolled out an actual API… for telegrams. Built in the same spirit as their drop-in telephony services, the Telegram API lets any third-party developer add hand-delivered, TaskRabbit-powered telegram functionality to their applications. I was curious as to whether or not the telegrams really got sent, and the Twilio-team found the perfect way to prove it: old-timey Rick Astley, hand delivered.

And I quote:

Never Shall I Cause You Duress. Never Shall I Say Good Day. Stop.
Never Shall I Say A Falsehood And Wound You. Stop.
