Go to the polls

Today’s Social Media Month challenge: Launch a Twitter poll.

Engage your audience in a story you’ve recently done or are currently working on. Build a poll to ask them their opinion about an issue, and see what kind of reaction is out there. You might come away with a source or two, or a few good contenders for a Storify element to go with your story, or even stand on its own as a folo of sorts.

And once you’ve got your poll in place, let your editors know so they can promote it on core social media accounts, and possibly even in the paper.

Special thanks to Mike Cruz @sbcourts for inspiring this challenge.
