It all started with a tweet from Cortez, known by her initials AOC, when she tweeted that she found the game fun, which caused a bunch of streamers to respond to her.
Among the first was one of the most popular streamers Imane “Pokimane” Anys, who replied by saying “It’d be an honour”, to which AOC replied in the affirmative.
Among us is a social deduction game similar to mafia where the 2 teams, crewmates and imposters try to outwit each other. If the imposters kill all the crewmates before being caught they win, whereas crewmates need to find and vote out the 2 imposters or finish their tasks to be the victors.
AOC later tweeted that her Twitch channel has been set up, and as she is getting her equipment and setup in place, it should not be long before the much awaited stream will take place.
It is the first time a politician has shown a keen interest in the game that went viral this summer, and will garner a lot of interest when the stream finally goes live.
