AOCs Among Us Livestream Is One Of The Biggest Twitch Streams Ever

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is currently streaming the video game Among Us with popular streamers Pokimane, HasanAbi, Jacksepticeye, and others, and the stream is pulling in some big numbers.

AOC’s livestream alone reached a peak of around 430,000 concurrent viewers, which makes it close to the biggest Twitch livestream in history. Combining that with the streaming figures for Pokimane, HasanAbi, Jacksepticeye, Moist, and Dr Lupo, the number climbs significantly higher. Another US representative, Ilhan Omar, is taking part in the livestream event as well.

For comparison, the Ninja/Drake livestream of Fortnite in 2018 reached more than 600,000 concurrent viewers to set a new record for the streaming platform.

The AOC stream has been a wholesome experience thus far, with the Congresswoman kicking things off by encouraging people to vote in the US election coming up soon. She’s had a playful banter with the other streamers, and overall it’s been a delight to watch.

This was AOC’s first-ever Twitch livestream. She hasn’t announced plans for additional streams, but there is clearly an appetite.
