In the past few months, I experimented a bit with Twitter Polls. The goal was — well — to experiment. What should the next poll be?

However, when I tried to see what people think about innovation in government, we all agree the road ahead is still long.

Twitter Polls were introduced this past October 2015. They give anybody on Twitter the option to post a poll with a maximum of 4 possible choices. The poll remains live for 24 hours and preferences are not shared publicly.

“For poll creators, it’s a new way to engage with Twitter’s massive audience and understand exactly what people think,” says Todd Sherman, Twitter project manager, in a October 2015 blog post. “For those participating, it’s a very easy way to make your voice heard.”

Isn’t that the goal of #digitaldiplomacy?
