Yeah, it must be the hedge fund hackers trying to stop her! LOLThis interview is a bit fuzzy on the issues.
Ah there, she unfuzzed herself.
ETA: Live stream plagued with technical issues. She is using OBS studio and doesn't know how to get audio from her guests into the stream.
Seriously, though, I love AOC, but this is a prime example of why live theater or live music is such an important part of education. Any theater person or musician would see the camera fuzziness and maybe fiddle for 5 or 10 seconds and move on. Just go with what you got. The show must go on! When audio routing fails, call the guest on the cell phone and use the speaker phone. It's not optimal, but this is twitch, not network TV. Nobody expects everybody to have a full tech crew.
She hit 370K or more shortly after she started, so she had a massive audience. For perspective, all League of Legends streamers, put togehter, have 200k right now, and that's the second biggest category on twitch right now, behind Just Chatting category, which is at 600k, and AOC is half of the viewers in that category! It's just frustrating to see her blow such a massive audience on OBS issues.
I bet she learns from this and is better next time she does a live stream.
EDIT: Finally back! Her audience dropped to 53k, though!
