As part of its recent roll-out of exciting new features, Twitter Polls will allow social media users to embed binary votes in their Tweets.

Twitter users -- including media outlets and private users -- will be able to ask questions of their followers and let them choose between two different responses. There are already examples of the first uses of Twitter Polls. In a recent Tweet, ESPN asked whether the Redskins or the Giants will win tonight's NFL game. In another sports-related example, the Raiders allowed fans to choose which of two players they would rather shadow at today's practice. Several humorous Twitter Polls asked followers whether the poll was working, with answers like "Yes" and "Where am I?"

Twitter Polls introduces a new level of versatility to the already globally popular social media platform.
