Twitter is a great place for asking questions and getting answers in real-time. Twoll.eu is a handy web app that helps creating online polls with Twitter. Running a poll on Twitter means sending out a link and hoping your followers will take the trouble of opening the link and then voting. People really do not like visiting a web poll from Twitter, mainly because many of them are on a mobile phone.
Twoll resolves this issue by allowing the clicking of a particular URL to register a vote.
How it works:
- Simply visit Twoll.eu and use Twitter credentials to authorize the app from your Twitter account.
- Now create a poll and add a question. Add options and a preview of the poll is created.
- Tweet out the poll and it shows up with links that can be clicked.
- Users can close the poll after after a while and can check the percentage of votes for the options provided.
Here is an example of a poll I created on Twoll.

A pro account version is expected soon and I think that will show more details on how many people are actually voting.
Do try out Twoll and let me know your views on it in your comments.
