Twitter to Roll Out New ‘Polls’ Feature

New function will allow users to poll followers, who can vote anonymously

Twitter will start rolling out its new feature “Twitter Polls” over the next few days, which will allow users to poll followers on any issue, the social media platform announced Wednesday.

The new icon will appear in the compose box on desktop and mobile versions of the service. Users will be able to create polls about anything and ask their followers to weigh in.

Moreover, the new feature will enable users to respond to polls anonymously with just one tap.

“For poll creators, it’s a new way to engage with Twitter’s massive audience and understand exactly what people think,” said the company’s official statement. “For those participating, it’s a very easy way to make your voice heard.”

Previously, the social media platform offered a few ways to participate in polls, including Tweeting questions and tracking replies, tallying hashtag votes, or asking followers to favorite or retweet the vote.

Now, creating these polls will be much easier, and the poll will remain live for 24 hours. When the poll closes, Twitter will send a push notification to everyone who participated to view the final results.

This new icon will appear on Android, iOS and on desktop over the next few days.
