Among Us is one of the most popular games played on Twitch, and more people watch it than any other game. The game is set on a spaceship, and one or two players are “imposters” attempting to sabotage a team of crewmates trying to do their tasks and figure out who the imposters are. 

The New York congresswoman asked who she should stream with, and got numerous responses. 

 

Within six hours of setting up her Twitch channel, she gained 140,000 followers on the platform. Other high-profile politicians have already launched Twitch channels, including Sen.
