AOC Is Playing Animal Crossing And She Could Visit Your Island
US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez invited her followers on Twitter to DM her Dodo codes.
United States Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has joined the Animal Crossing: New Horizons train. In a tweet, she said she is very new to the game, but wanted to visit random people's islands and leave notes on their bulletin boards. She then opened her DMs briefly to receive Dodo codes from followers. Now that she has the game, there is a chance you could have a sitting congressperson visit your own island.
The Congresswoman initially tweeted that she was opening her DMs for four minutes, but in a reply, she said that she got enough DMs that her app crashed after only one minute. She also said that opening her DMs (albeit briefly) went better than expected.
Hi there! Very new to this.— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 7, 2020
I would like to visit random people’s islands and leave a doodle or note on their bulletin board.
Can I do that? If so, how?
Should I open my DMs for the first time since the Zuckerberg hearing for the Dodo codes?? https://t.co/pQlm0ES1cM
"Honestly never in my life did I think opening my DMs would grant me faith in humanity but the brief window actually resulted in a lot of these messages being very wholesome," she wrote in a follow-up tweet. "People are asking for surprise visits to their spouse's islands!! This is the love everyone deserves[.]"
She has subsequently shared some glimpses of her trips to other players' islands and even expressed an interest in appearing on Star Wars writer Gary Whitta's Animal Crossing show, Animal Talking.
Update 2: first ever House call (get it?😉) in the books!— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) May 7, 2020
It was so sweet. Island belonged to a family of three. We exchanged fruit, took pictures, and I signed a bulletin note using my touch screen.
I was floored by how fast they typed and they taught me about the app. 🥰 pic.twitter.com/KJsI6Gjh9p
Animal Crossing is a wholesome game, and it's certainly good for bringing people together. Ocasio-Cortez, who has previously gotten the attention of video game fans for appearing on hbomberguy's charity stream at the beginning of 2019 and confirming that she plays League of Legends, isn't the only public figure to play with fans and/or followers; Elijah Wood visited someone's Animal Crossing: New Horizons island to sell turnips, and he was apparently very lovely.
