Prepare for Endless Polls: Twitter Rolling Out Poll Feature to All Users

Fav for the death of fav/RT. RT for the death of fav/RT.


Twitter is finally taking something its users have been accomplishing by workaround so long that it’s become a running joke and making it into a full-fledged feature. Soon, all users of the platform will be able to add polls to their tweets, and the world as we know it will descend into a pit of endless binary decisions.

So get all of those “Fav if [blank]. RT if [blank].” situations out of your system now; we’ll soon ask for feedback from our followers in an official format that will no doubt draw its own eventual, ubiquitous memes. For now, polls will be limited to just two options as demonstrated below:

The feature will roll out across the desktop version of Twitter as well as iOS and Android over the next few days, which we’re pretty sure will be hard to miss while everyone is asking you what they should have for dinner, whether or not they should consider their past-expiration milk safe to drink, or what their dog is thinking right now.

Luckily for classroom notes, the results are anonymous, so you’ll still have to ask, “Do you like me?” the old-fashioned way.
