AOC calls to vote playing ‘Among Us’ and gets hundreds of thousands of followers in a few hours

Many of us remember the posting of posters by the towns when the electoral campaign began, followed by cars with megaphones that mixed the announcements of rallies with the party’s tune.

Today all that sounds a bit archaic, and electoral campaigns have been moving to social networks. The Cambridge Analytica case is one of the best examples of the power and importance of the Internet, and the new elections in the US are leaving us with other interesting transitions.

Twitch + ‘Among Us’, one of the phenomena of this 2020

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (better known as AOC)In addition to being the youngest congresswoman in the United States, she is one of the most relevant voices in current American politics.

Gamer declared (passionate about ‘League of Legends’), the congresswoman is now looking for some people who want to be part of her team in ‘Among Us’, one of the great phenomena of this 2020.

Anyone want to play Among Us with me on Twitch to get out the vote? (I’ve never played but it looks like a lot of fun)

The most interesting of all is that has achieved that amount of followers in a matter of hours, and without having issued a second on this account. AOC received many responses, from well-known streamers such as Pokimane or HasanAbi, and assured that he was going to get the necessary equipment to start streaming on Twitch.

As he made clear in his initial tweets, His intention with these streams is to educate viewers to come to the polls. Everything indicates that today, October 20, it will begin broadcasting live on Twitch (on its night).

And is that ‘Among Us’ and Twitch are very topical. Last month, Esportscharts revealed some figures for the first 15 days of September, and three Spanish streamers (Ibai, ElRubius and AuronPlay) are in the top 5 worldwide of visits. The month of September ended as follows:

You guys are sick in the head
