Since Wednesday, Twitter brought users Twitter Polls, a new native polling feature already reported with some accounts.
Harnessing commitment from users has never been easier. If you’re a Twitter user and want to know the opinion of your peers on the latest football match, the performance of this or that actor, settle disputes on the approved color palette of this autumn’s fashion, then Twitter Polls is perfect.
The feature will be supported on iOS, Android and desktop, with the roll-out already begun. Check whether Twitter Polls has already been added to your application of choice in the compose box.
Composing a poll on the topic of your desire thus becomes easy. While it can only support two answer versions, it is still useful in settling some debates.
Each poll is only open for 24 hours and should harness quite some interest from other users. In the future, depending on how Twitter Polls fares now, the time length could be changed. For now, a 24-hour timeframe should be sufficient to tell you whether people prefer cheese over wine or Batman over Superman.
Compared to other voting procedure introduced by Twitter in the past, Twitter polls simplifies the process. Voting results are automatically calculated. At the end of the voting timeframe, the poll closes and all participants will be announced of the results via push notifications.
Twitter brought users Twitter Polls, a new native polling feature that allows better embedding of polls in tweets directly. This means bypassing the hashtag voting or other features introduced in the past.
While last month a number of users already benefited from a version of Twitter polls, it turns out the majority of accounts were celebrities or Twitter employees. Which makes sense, considering that they can harness an impressing cohort of followers that are useful in testing a new feature.
However, Twitter polls is now an option for everyone.
