AOC will celebrate her landslide re-election with another Twitch stream

Recently re-elected US congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) has confirmed that she will do another Twitch stream soon, but only after election mania subsides.

Last month, AOC streamed on Twitch for the first time, playing Among Us with the likes of Pokimane, Disguised Toast, and fellow representative Ilhan Omar. The stream peaked with over 400,000 viewers as fans got to watch a politician be far more human than most of her counterparts (even while backstabbing multiple people).

Besides learning the intricacies of good Imposter play in Among Us, AOC also used the stream as an opportunity to boost her campaign, even explaining the American healthcare system to Hbomberguy from the UK.

It appears that AOC is going to go through all that again, tweeting that she is looking to stream “this week or next”. What she is planning to do for the stream is yet to be known, but the New York representative did put a tweet out asking for suggestions.

Out of the many replies including watching Star Trek: Voyager or playing chess, and Ocasio-Cortez tentatively responded to Pokimane’s suggestion of playing League of Legends together. AOC previously revealed that she plays the highly popular MOBA and is ranked Silver III, which is highly impressive for someone with an incredibly packed schedule.

With AOC having been on the campaign trail for the still ongoing (as of this time of writing) 2020 US election, it appears that the next stream will have to wait for now, with her tweeting: “I need a nap.” Despite her having only undertaken one stream, AOC’s Twitch channel has accumulated over 700,000 followers.

Ocasio-Cortez was re-elected as the Representative of New York’s 14th congressional district in a landslide, taking nearly 70 percent of the vote over her Republican opponent John Cummings. Besides her, the other three members of the Squad (Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib) also cruised to re-election in their respective districts.
