Twitter Polls

Twitter is continuing to introduce new features in hopes that they can attract more users.

One of their latest attempts to get user engagement is through their polling feature that is now available to any user.

In the past, if you wanted to use Twitter to take a poll, you had to use hashtags or third party polling sites, which could get a bit complicated.

The new polling feature isn’t going to replace your market research tools, it’s just a simple and quick way to get some feedback.

You’re limited to two answers and the polls will only be available for twenty four hours, so it can be useful for really simple polling questions; nothing more.

If you vote in a poll, your response is private, so there is no tracking of who voted for what.

Twitter is slowly rolling it out to their apps and on their website, so watch for a pie chart icon with the word Poll next to it when you compose your tweets.
