Even though it came out in 2018, Among Us became a phenomenon this year after several Twitch personalities started playing it and piqued the interest of the general public.
View records On platforms such as YouTube, Twitch or TikTok, they have become the constant every week since the popularity of the game soared, and now to those records we must add the feat of politics Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who holds the record for the youngest woman to join the United States Congress.
The feat with Among Us It only started on October 19, when he posted a message on Twitter asking who wanted to play it.
‘Someone wants play Among Us with me on Twitch to convince them to vote? (I’ve never played it, but it looks like it’s a lot of fun ‘, was the tweet from Ocasio-Cortez, who is also known as AOC.
The tweet went viral (at the time of writing this article, it had more than 430 thousand interactions) and a short time later the Democrat already had a verified Twitch account which boasted hundreds of thousands of followers.
It was from the night of Tuesday 20 to the early morning of this Wednesday 21 that the AOC stream took place, which also had the participation of the Twitch personalities Pokimane, Dr Lupo, Disguised Toast, Moistcr1tikal, Myth, Mxmtoon, Jacksepticeye, and Hasan Piker, while others like Valkyrae and Corpse joined on the fly.
AOC’s party partner, Ilhan Omar, was also present.
What resulted was a spike of 439 thousand concurrent viewers only in the AOC channel -that is, without adding those contributed by the other streamers-, a figure that makes the Democrat the holder of the third place for most concurrent viewers on a single channel in the entire history of Twitch.
Contrary to what might be thought, AOC avoided political messages and he just limited himself to playing.
At the end of the stream, which lasted three and a half hours, AOC invited viewers to vote in presidential elections from the United States.
