When it comes to manifesting your thoughts to the world in just 140-character message then Twitter is the servient owner for that exigency. However, Twitter users may not be able to obtain the opinions on particular issue or topic from other users in an effective manner. Following this, Twitter Inc said it is rolling out a feature that will allow users to run polls on their profile, in an attempt to retouch user engagement on the platform.

The company has been working hard on its ‘Poll’ feature since September and this announcement shouldn’t come as surprise for many of the tech media outlets.
Every coin has two sides, these polls from Twitter will definitely going to help media houses and publishers to conduct the opinion poll on multiple issues. But somewhere down the line, the polls limits interaction and many of the users might be concerned about being tracked when they vote on Twitter.
However, Twitter was certainly aware of such problems and that’s why the company has decided not to track the users when they vote on Twitter polls.
“Now, you’ll be able to create your own two-choice poll right from the compose box and it will remain live for 24 hours. You can vote on any poll, and how you voted is not shared publicly.” wrote by Todd Sherman, Product Manager of Twitter, in company’s official blog post.
Twitter Polls are rolling out over the next few days for iOS, Android and on Desktop at Twitter.com and will show as a poll icon above in the compose box.
