Twitter Announces New Polls Feature on iOS, Web

Twitter this morning announced a new feature for the social network: the ability to create polls “with just a couple of taps,” to allow your followers to sound off any topic of your choosing.

The company explains the feature is “a new way to engage with Twitter’s massive audience and understand exactly what people think. For those participating, it’s a very easy way to make your voice heard.”

A new ‘poll’ icon will soon become available within the iOS app to allow users to compose a two-choice poll, which will stay live for 24 hours, with votes remaining anonymous.
