A Quick Preview of the Voting Tool for Ignite II on June 24 @ Ceilis

Posted on 10 June 2010 by IgniteBC

This is a quick example of the live polling tool that we will be implementing in the next Ignite Event on June 24th. It is a real time polling and voting tool where you can send in your votes using your cell phone to either Twitter, or text message. Give it a try! You can text a KEYWORD vote to “32075″, or alternately you can Twitter your vote using the following format: @IgniteBC KEYWORD. Just substitute the topic keyword into the Twitter post. For example, if you want to vote for the first presention, just Twitter @IgniteBC GRINGO. The results will be posted immediately on this page in real time. Try it, it’s cool!
