Apparently all Twitter users can now create polls

Instead of writing your typical tweet, hit the pie chart to enter your questions and answers for your poll.

Want to poll your readers on Twitter? You may no longer need to have them hit favorite for one response, or retweet for another.

That’s because Twitter has rolled out a feature that lets at least some users tweet a poll on which other users can click one of the answers.

Twitter said in a blog post dated October 21 all its users can create polls in “the coming days.” More than week later, it appears everyone can do so, as I can with multiple accounts I manage.

The polls are “live for 24 hours,” “you can vote on any poll, and how you voted is not shared publicly,” according to the blog post.

When I tried the feature, Twitter let me write, in both words and emojis, both my own question and two answers.

How it looks after the poll closes.
