Upside to the polls is that you can pin it!
If you really wish to see as many people see your poll and vote in it, you can just pin it at the top of your timeline. You can also promote the poll by tweeting about it, which would in turn increase your engagement with followers as well. Actually, as a few studies have shown, twitter polls do increase the level of engagement with your fans although not to a huge extent. All the same, any increase in how interactive you and your followers are should be appreciated. The twitter poll feature is still new in the market after all, and it could in future turn out to be a huge thing for brands and businesses.
The downside is that voters are kept private!
Surprisingly, you can really never know who voted in your poll. You only get to find out how many people voted the how people voted in percentage. Similarly, a voter doesn’t get to see who else cast their vote. They only see the number of votes cast from time to time and the time left before a poll comes to an end. However, a voter can also retweet your twitter poll so that their followers too can engage in the voting.
If you are looking at this as a business opportunity. You could run polls for other companies and give them results based on data you get from the polls. Your clients can be anyone. The anonymity provided by twitter often gets more people to be honest and more vibrant in giving their opinions and showcasing their choices. Being an online freelancer involves taking advantage of such product features to make you money.
