The US congresswoman stars in one of the most watched streams playing ‘Among Us’

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (better known as AOC)In addition to being the youngest congresswoman in the United States, she can now also boast of being one of the successful streamers on Twitch.

AOC created his account on the platform and gained hundreds of thousands of followers without having started a stream, promising that he would hold a game of ‘Among Us’ in a gesture to make viewers aware of going to the polls.

In this way, AOC has become 5th most watched individual person in Twitch history. As we can see in SportRush, the Twitch podium for “streamers only” is as follows:

  • Ninja (+ Drake and Travis Scott) playing Fornite: 616,693 viewers
  • TheGrefg playing Fornite: 538,444 viewers
  • Shroud playing Valorant: 516,289 viewers
  • xTears88 playing League of Legends 512,246 viewers
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez playing Among Us: 439,000 viewers
  • They are amazing figures, especially if we consider that we are talking about a new profile on Twitch of a person who comes from the world of politics. In addition to demonstrate that there are “new” ways to campaign, this success makes us wonder what kind of strategies we will see in the years to come.

    He already exceeds 538,000 followers on his Twitch account

    With just one game (It is posted on his profile, three and a half hours long), AOC currently already exceeds 538,000 followers on his Twitch account. At the time of this writing, his first game has more than 4.5 million views.

    A few years ago it would have seemed surreal to think of a politician streaming video games in the middle of the electoral. Another good example is found at the beginning of last month, when Joe Biden and Kamala Harris began the campaign asking for the vote within ‘Animal Crossing: New Horizons’.
