Recently Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez live-streamed herself playing the popular game”Among Us” with several high profiled Twitch streamers. The stream saw over 400,00+ people watching live. It became the third most-watched stream on Twitch.
For those who don’t game regularly, “Among Us” is a hugely popular online murder mystery game. It involves players called crewmembers trying to fix a broken spaceship, but there is a player called an impostor within the group that is tasked with both sabotaging and murdering the other players. Crewmembers must find the imposter while dealing with their specific tasks to win the game.
During the live-stream, she appealed to viewers in the United States “to get out the vote” ahead of the U.S. election on November 3 in 12 days. Fellow Congresswoman Ilhan Omar also joined the live stream to play as well.
The stream lasted roughly about three and a half hours.
