Hi Kamal,
In the TwilioSendSMSController, rather than using the default client credentials, you should use your own. Goto Twilio Website and signup for a free account. Generate Account Token and Access Token and replace it in your code.
 
global class TwilioSendSMSController {
   @AuraEnabled
      webService static String sendMessages(String mobNumber, String message, Id contactId) {
       
         if (mobNumber == null) {
            mobNumber = getPhoneNumber(contactId);
         }
 
        String account = 'YOUR_ACCOUNT_TOKEN_SRING';
  String token = 'YOUR_TOKEN_STRING';
         try {
            TwilioRestClient client = new TwilioRestClient(account, token);

            Map<String,String> params = new Map<String,String> {
               'To' => mobNumber,
               'From' => '+12156318540',
               'Body' => message
               };
            TwilioSMS sms = client.getAccount().getSMSMessages().create(params);
            return sms.getStatus();
         } catch(exception ex) {
            return 'failed';
         }
      }

      @AuraEnabled
      public static String getPhoneNumber(Id contactId) {
         Contact currentRecord = [SELECT Phone FROM Contact WHERE Id = :contactId];
         return currentRecord.Phone.replace(' ', '').replace('-', '').replace(')', '').replace('(', '');
   }
}
Thanks,
Aman

@Aman, it solved the problem. Don't know why the default is not working.
