Move over, statisticians. There’s a new polling service in town.

Poptip, a funky new app, lets you tweet any question and get quality results in real-time.

Here’s how it works.

You can also add a photo to the tweet.

As soon as you send it out, Poptip starts gathering results for you, and presents them to you real-time in your dashboard.

The uses of this handy service are endless.

For journalists: get a competitive angle on a breaking news story by asking your followers a question when the story breaks, and having Poptip aggregate the data to use and share.

For digital marketers: capitalize on crowd-sourced intel to get the scoop on what prospective leads like and want.

For bloggers: boost your blog content with real-time, high-quality, relevant data gathered by Poptip in response to a targeted question from you.
