AOC has planned to play Among Us Twitch with Pokimane and other stars.
It's 2020. The surprises keep on coming.
In hopes of increasing voting numbers for the upcoming Nov. 3 U.S. General Election, U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) will be joined by a high-profile cast of streamers and personalities for her first Among Us Twitch stream Tuesday, Oct. 20, at 9 p.m. EDT.
AOC Among Us Stream Has Been Planned With Pokimane and Others
Two slots for crewmates/imposters have been filled by Twitch streamer and political commentator Hasan “HasanAbi” Piker, and content creator Imane “Pokimane” Anys.
"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)," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Monday.
Less than an hour later, AOC's freshly created Twitch channel had reached 8.7k followers and the elusive purple verified badge, promptly earning her a partnership on the streaming platform.
Ocasio-Cortez's tweet set the social media world aflame in quick order.
From popular Twitch streamer Ben “DrLupo” Lupo to San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence, AOC's mentions blew up with those looking to either secure an invite or vouch for others to be included in the 10-player private lobby.
AOC has also since responded to Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar, who appears to be joining the cast as well.
