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.
