Polls reveal people's opinion. When you vote in a Twitter poll, your identity remains private. You know the poll result when it ends or after you vote. End time of a poll is configurable by the original poster. It varies from 5 minutes to 7 days. Sometimes you may want to know the poll result before voting for some reason.
With the help of a bookmarklet, you can do that. Just click and drag the button below to your bookmarks bar.
How it works
Then, I created a bookmarklet for the ease of use. You can find the Twitter poll result script as a gist.
Now, all you have to do is open any tweet with a poll and click on the bookmarklet.
On mobile app, you can know the poll result without casting your vote to any of the choices. All you have to do is, open the poll page, become offline by turning off mobile data & WiFi. Now, continuously tap any of the choices, Twitter will give away the poll result for a moment.
As this bookmarklet relies on
PollXChoice-choice--text classes and
permalink-overlay-dialog id to display the result, it may not work as expected, if Twitter changes those class or id names. Hence, if this trick doesn't work, please let me know in the comments section.
Mobile trick works only on mobile app, you can't make it work on Twitter mobile web.
