Run a Pole on Twitter with Google Forms

Run a Pole on Twitter with Google Forms

You can run quick polls on Twitter or quiz on Twitter using Google Forms. Elections are embedded in your tweets and people can reply without leaving Twitter.

Unlike Google Plus, Twitter does not provide original voting solutions, so you have to rely on external service to run quick quotes or even quiz with your Twitter followers. You will prepare a survey on services such as Poldad or Wufu and tweet the link, your followers can vote by clicking on the link.

Thus, most of the elections are held on Twitter, but the person has to leave the Twitter website to answer your vote. What would be better if there is no way to embed a live pole in the tweet, then people can reply to inline, like subscribing to inline without leaving Twitter ecosystem?

Embed in your Tweets

Well, with Google Forms, this is possible. When you tweet the link to Google Form, Twitter embeds the actual form when tweeted. People can talk on form and submit them on Twitter.

See this live example of tweets embedded in a survey hosted on Google Forms – you can reply to it within the tweet.

There is no trick here, except that you must keep the ballot really small. This is because Twitter will display only one question or two in extended tweets and thus most people will not understand the way to navigate other hidden queries. (Hint: use the tab key)

Also, while designing Google Form, select a theme with smaller fonts and set the description text to be empty so that the actual questions can be clearly visible in extended tweets. You can put the details in your tweets instead.
