AOC Is Streaming Among Us Right Now, Watch Here
AOC is playing Among Us with Canadian parliament member Jagmeet Singh and other guests on Friday.
For the second time ever, US Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is streaming Among Us right now. Following her record-breaking stream, AOC is taking part in another stream, this time one organized by Jagmeet Singh, leader of the Canadian New Democratic Party. The stream is live right now on Twitch, and you can watch it for yourself below. It's already cracked the 100k viewer mark.
The stream is ongoing, and it features well-known video game streamers such as HasanAbi, Northernlion, and XQC, who, notably, was recently banned temporarily from Twitch. That was due to a cheating incident in a recent Fall Guys tournament.
Today's stream began at 4 PM PT (7 PM ET). We don't know how long it will run for, but her first stream lasted for several hours as she worked to encourage people to get out and vote. While that game was broadcast on multiple Twitch channels, AOC's channel alone saw peak concurrent viewers top a whopping 430,000.
Plans for a stream were announced on Thanksgiving day, as Singh publicly invited AOC, Northerlion, and HasanAbi to take part in a stream. AOC replied on Tiwtter, saying she was in for the Friday night stream.

This is the first time that Singh has organized a stream, but it's an increasingly popular way for politicians to connect with constituents, especially this year with so many stuck inside due to COVID-19. Last time, AOC streamed alongside US House Representative Ilhan Omar, and viewers were encouraged to make a voting plan. This stream is, of course, happening on the other side of the US presidential election.
