Every once in a while, Twitter will improve their service by rolling out some cool new features that allow users to do things quicker and more efficent.
Now, Twitter users won’t have to ask a question and go through the pain of sifting through a few hundred responses as they’ve rolled out a brand new feature called “Twitter Polls”.
The online social networking service announced “Twitter Polls”, a feature that will be rolled out over the next days on both the web version and the mobile app version of Twitter.
Through this feature, users can create a poll by tapping a new icon in the Tweet compose box on Twitter. All they need to do is just construct a question and provide 2 voting options for followers to vote.
The polls will remain live for only 24 hours, and all votes will not be shared publicly.
On #BackToTheFutureDay, what's the best response to finally reaching 10/21/15?

In a blog post announcement, Twitter project manager Todd Sherman said a few lucky users were chosen to participate in testing out the polling capability earlier at the end of September this year.
For poll creators, it’s a new way to engage with Twitter’s massive audience and understand exac tly what people think.
“For those participating, it’s a very easy way to make your voice heard,” he added.

The new “Twitter Polls” could help drive brand engagement, but it won’t allow you to put more than 2 options along with photos…yet.
In fact, users of Tweetdeck or 3rd-party Twitter apps can simply see the questions posed. They won’t be able to cast their votes because there’s no options for them to tap on their preferred response.
