Speculations have been rife about Twitter introducing a new way for users to quickly add polls to their tweets. And while we only had a few leaks from here and there on the same, Twitter, in a statement sent to VentureBeat, has now confirmed that it is indeed experimenting with such a thing.

As of now though, the feature is reportedly visible only on the mobile apps and website, not on desktop applications like TweetDeck. There’s no official word on the roll-out of this feature (if it happens) to other Twitter users.

Twitter said,

We’re experimenting with a new way to poll users on Twitter.

These polls, which only a few users have witnessed so far, appear to have a 24 hour limit default deadline set to them, post which they’ll be disabled for voting. Also, while Twitter’s statement may signal towards an actual release, the company is still experimenting with this, and hence there are all possibilities that the feature gets shelved altogether.

This however, won’t be the first time you can add polls to your tweets. Previously, companies were able to poll their followers through custom card polls. That is now not prevalent though.
