Twitter introduces polling to tweets

Johannesburg - Twitter has announced a brand new feature called Twitter Polls.

With it, users can canvass public opinion in on absolutely anything or suss out what a majority of people actually think about a particular topic.

The social media giant made the announcement today. In a statement, Twitter product manager Todd Sherman said:

"We’re excited to share that in the coming days, everyone will be able to create polls on Twitter. And, with just a couple of taps, people can weigh in on all the topics they care about.

If you want the public’s opinion on anything — what to name your dog, who will win tonight’s game, which election issue people care most about — there’s no better place to get answers than on Twitter. For poll creators, it’s a new way to engage with Twitter’s massive audience and understand exactly what people think. For those participating, it’s a very easy way to make your voice heard.

Previously, we’ve offered a few ways to participate in polls — Tweeting questions and tracking replies, tallying hashtag votes, or asking followers to favorite or Retweet to vote. Now, you’ll be able to create your own two-choice poll right from the compose box and it will remain live for 24 hours. You can vote on any poll, and how you voted is not shared publicly."
