#Trending: Twitter moments and polls


Within the past two months, the popular social media site came out with “Twitter Moments” and “Twitter Polls.” On Twitter, we find conversations between world leaders and celebrities, even live commentary on the night’s big game. “Twitter Moments” puts all these tweets, pictures and videos into relevant categories where users can view the top tweets all at once. On the night of the terrorist attacks in Paris, users logged in to look at the tweets and videos as the events were unfolding.

Twitter also recently launched “Twitter Polls.” It’s fun to use if you want the public’s opinion on anything: what to name your dog, who will win tonight’s game or which election issue people care most about. There’s no better place to get answers than on Twitter.

The updates are a new way to engage with Twitter’s massive audience and understand exactly what people think.
