Platform v. Application

Platforms are systems on which applications are built. Applications are built on top of platforms. Applications are things end users interact with. Platforms are things applications interact with. Twilio is a platform for building telephony platforms. Airbnb uses Twilio to power their guest/host communication application.

Are we all cool?
