Twitter rolls out polling feature
New Delhi: Social microblogging website Twitter on Friday launched a new feature called Polls, which will allow its users to take opinions of other users on the platform on any topic.
“Now it’s possible for everyone to create polls on Twitter. Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) created his first poll on Friday,” Twitter said in a release.
Previously, Twitter offered a few ways to participate in polls including tweeting questions, tracking replies, tallying favourites, retweets and hashtag votes.
“Now, with just a couple of taps, people can weigh in on all the topics they care about. You can now create a quick 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,” it said.
