AOC’s Among Us stream topped 435,000 concurrent viewers

This cemented her in the top five on the record board for Twitch's most concurrent viewers on a stream, according to gaming site GinX.

The stream was watched by over 4,39,000 viewers, making it the third-highest individual stream by viewership in the history of Twitch.

The Democratic congresswoman from NY live-streamed herself playing Among Us, a space-themed game, on Tuesday evening and at its peak drew in 435,000 live viewers, according to Twitch.

In an effort to encourage people to vote in the 2020 election, the two Democratic congresswomen played the online murder mystery game that has risen in popularity alongside Twitch stars like pokimane, HasanAbi and Myth. A look at the unofficial Steam Charts for Among Us tells a story of the game's rapid climb out of obscurity; it's seen a almost 1,000% boost in its player population since this time a year ago, with well over a quarter million people playing Among Us on Steam at time of writing. As a studio, InnerSloth has also released a 2015 mobile game, Dig 2 China. Crewmates will complete tasks like connecting wires or filling fuel tanks, while the impostor (s) will pick them off one by one.

The Verge calls Ocasio-Cortez's decision to play the title "a strategic one". Video of the full stream is available to watch on Twitch.

Borat then barges in to interrupt the encounter. "I am tucking my shirt in, I assure you, that's all that I was doing", he said . The film then sees Borat , dressed in a red bra and panties, arrive at the room and yell, "She's 15!" She too old for you.

Most of the streamers involved in the event are not known for political content, barring Harry "Hbomberguy" Brewis, a leftist YouTuber who hosted Ocasio-Cortez on a stream in 2019, and Piker, who started his career with the Young Turks.

Before she even began streaming, AOC's new Twitch channel had accumulated roughly 250,000 followers.

With the US elections just 10 days away, US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez found a unique way to garner the attention of young citizens and encourage them to vote. She was assigned the role of an imposter - whose job in the viral video game is to go around killing crewmates. Thank you all for coming out and watching. Many users applauded Ocasio-Cortez and expressed their love for the congresswoman.

There were a few other politics-adjacent moments as well, like this hilariously upsetting exchange with @Hbomberguy about the ease and affordability of healthcare in the UK. Bernie Sanders also have accounts on the platform, but only have 143,000 and 159,000 followers, respectively. Both President Donald Trump and Sen.
