• Twitter Announces Plans to Let Users Create Polls for Their Followers



    Twitter has announced on Wednesday that it will be rolling out a feature for users soon that will allow the user to create a poll for their followers to cast votes in. The polls will encourage engagement between users and followers, creating a more social experience, and will be available within just a few more days.

    Before this change, users had to use alternative poll Web sites and link them to Twitter to get peoples' opinions. Polls were less interactive because they weren't a part of the actual Twitter feed, but with this upcoming change, polls will sit flush with the rest of your Twitter feed content, making them interactive directly from the feed without the need to visit a third-party Web site.

    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.
    These polls will be able to be created and interacted with on the Web site, from the iOS mobile application, and even from the Android mobile application. That being said, no one will be missing out on the polling fun.
