For those here who always wished they could ask a simple poll question to their followers on Twitter, you may now do so. Rolling out this week to Android, iOS, and desktop users, anyone with a Twitter account can now create a 2-question poll for people to answer.
There does not appear to be a limit on who can answer, or what you can ask in the polls, but Twitter stressed in the announcement that the way you answer a poll will remain completely private.
Polls can go viral, as users can share them, RT them, quote them, or whatever else the kids are doing these days with the tweets. Polls will stay live on Twitter’s servers for 24 hours, then, will shut down. At that point you can access your data.
Be on the lookout for an update to your official Twitter app, if you don’t happen to use a 3rd-party like the rest of us.
