Do Twitter Polls Show Up in Ads?


I ran a Twitter poll earlier today, and I wanted to promote it to get more votes. In the Twitter Ads interface, when you select the tweet for the campaign, it leaves out the poll. It's hard to tell if it's going to just tweet the text or include the poll.

I searched online and only found people asking, so I decided I'd answer.

When you create an ad campaign on Twitter and choose a Tweet with a poll in it, it does show the poll in the ad, and you will get more votes.


I created a super direct poll, and I used two high-volume hashtags...

Then, I promoted it for two days, at $10 per day, and I targeted "makers" and "artists" very broadly.

So far, I've had good results. I actually didn't expect much. We'll see how it looks when it's over!
