“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.”
Twitter have previously allowed users to ask questions and track their replies within their community through the use of hashtags or asking for “retweets” or “favourite” to cast a vote. This new feature allows you to create your own poll straight from your newsfeed for a 24 hour period.
This tool will be invaluable for me as feedback from my community is crucial for my next steps when it comes to webinars, events, training and new products I want to launch. Do note that you can vote just once on any poll, and this will not be shared publicly.
