The main poll page and the poll FAQ
http://www.imdb.com/poll/
http://www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?poll

link to the Twitter feed
http://twitter.com/IMDbPoll

which has not been used since 2015.

If possible, try to restart the feed, perhaps with automatic posting of new polls. Some of us poll users/admins could also use the feed, though I understand this may not be feasible.

Otherwise, link to the main IMDb feed if you expect to post polls there in the future, or perhaps to a Twitter search including the search terms IMDb and poll.

It'll be better if IMDb feature polls at their official Twitter page (https://twitter.com/IMDb), not at this IMDb Poll Twitter page. Because, as of now that page have only 2,357 followers and I don't know how many of them follow IMDb on a regular basis.

IMDb's main Twitter page can earn a lot more votes o polls than the Poll's page.

So, the best solution will be linking the original IMDb Twitter page to the IMDb Poll Section (http://www.imdb.com/poll).

The two are not mutually exclusive. The main feed has many followers, but doesn't feature many polls (the last one was before Christmas). The poll feed could send out polls every day.

Col. Needham, can you tell me how to take my e-mail address off of this site.  I am not interested, like so many others apparently are.  I did not sign up for this and I don't appreciated getting tons of this movie stuff.  Thank you.

It appears the link has been removed from the FAQ page, but not from the main poll page.

Pibby,

The IMDb Poll Twitter account is linked with each and every IMDb Poll's page. See here:



If you look at the top right corner of the page:



I think, IMDb's official main twitter account should be linked there, not that Poll's twitter account which hasn't been used in years.

If the main twitter page is get linked on every poll's page IMDb can have some more followers on Twitter, you know - marketing strategy!!!

It would be great if the featured poll of the day could be posted on IMDb's Facebook page every day. That would mean a lot to all of us, poll authors. Many thanks!

Col,

Thank you for the update.

But the following Facebook related issue hasn't fixed yet:

This is a separate issue with a separate ticket, sorry.  It has been recorded as a future enhancement since it is not an existing bug so there's a much longer timeline on this.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Why the silence on the IMDbPoll Twitter page?.

Just curious; nothing's been posted in over a month (since April 8).

That's April 8, 2015, actually. Time flies. I guess the account might as well be removed.
