They were introduced in 2015 and we absolutely love them. They are a super easy way for people to engage with you (they just need two clicks). This means that participation is usually high. Twitter polls are great for asking for feedback (great alternative to a boring survey), increasing your influence, and for having fun. Keep reading for a full tutorial on Create a Twitter Poll.
