We’re not interested in anyone’s actual opinion, but we are interested in who people have opinions about.
If we were a mainstream media outlet, we’d bill this as being ‘Twitter’s verdict’ as if Twitter’s a single person with a single opinion and a single voice.
What we will instead say is here’s a flawed poll representing the views of a small selection of people who were using Twitter at the exact moment when we tweeted our survey, some of whom have voted multiple times.
On which England Test batsman would you most like to offer your opinion, despite the pointlessness of doing so?
