I suggest you to read below limitations before you start integrating any Texting Gateway at Salesforce.

"Twilio consume 1 API call for  1 SMS".

If you want to send 200 SMS in bulk dataloader update you have to make 200 API calls which is not recommended.
You can build future calls to handle to make API calls, but that won't be a good process.

Install ValueText SMS (https://goo.gl/2uBgMM) app which is cheap and easy to use.
  • 1 API call to send messages up to 40K.
  • You can send SMS from Workflow or process builder like Email.
  • You can create an SMS template so easily like text email template.
  • You need not to edit apex code every time if there is a change in SMS template.
  • Real Time Status of Message
  • Single or Bulk SMS
  • SMS from List View
  • Send SMS from custom or standard object
There are more advanced options you can find.
