    Last night, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on Twitch to stream another game of Among Us.

    The livestream got over 400,000 viewers, NBD.

    Joining AOC were people like Jagmeet Singh, leader of Canada's New Democratic Party, and it's safe to say it was a hoot.

    Today I’m using the stream to fundraise for local food pantries, eviction defense legal aid, & community support organizations. So many people are having a hard time in this crisis. If you’re able, you can help direct aid here efforts here: https://t.co/Dn7xy2LXCT

    As the stream went on for a cool six hours, here are just some of AOC's best moments:

    1. First, when she asked her fellow ghosts to unionize:

    We did it! $200k raised in one livestream (on a whim!) for eviction defense, food pantries, and more. This is going to make such a difference for those who need it most right now. Thank you all 👾💞 https://t.co/KX5m5GXJ9B

    17. And, finally, when she said she'd do it all again.

    AOC says, Til next time
