When it comes to using the new Twitter Polls, there is really no area that cannot be talked about, highlighted, or made into a poll question. This is great in that it can create a dialogue with a page and start to give it personality. Of all the different topics that can be made into a poll, among the most popular are political discussions. Political discussions tend to gauge interest and start to create a discussion that is relevant. For the right page, political topics can be a great way to get noticed more quickly and get people’s opinions on an issue.
For those that use politically driven Twitter Polls, the goal is to balance opinion with feedback. These polls can become contentious very quickly. That is why it is vital that those who are going to use such questions really know and understand how to control feedback that is given and the interest that may be garnered. That is not to say that one should stay away from these topics but that they should be used with discretion and adherence to policy in mind. A bit of buzz, though, can be a great thing for a page and a lightning rod issue like politics can be just what is needed.
