Washington: Microblogging site Twitter announced that it has expanded its polling feature to all users.

Polls, which were earlier accessible only to a limited users, will soon be available to all.

“We’re excited to share that in the coming days, everyone will be able to create polls on Twitter. And, with just a couple of taps, people can weigh in on all the topics they care about”, wrote Product Manager Todd Sherman in a blog.

The feature will allow users to create their own two-choice poll right from the compose box where it will remain live for 24 hours.

Sherman notes while users will not know who voted or how others voted in their polls, participants can view the results after the votes are in.

The company is rolling out the feature over the next few days on iOS, Android, and on desktop at twitter.com.
