san francisco - The Reddit forum has blocked 944 accounts because they would have been created by a Russian 'troll factory'. That organization, the Internet Research Agency, is suspected of having published fake messages in the run-up to the US presidential elections. Reddit, one of the most visited sites in the world, has also mentioned the names of all 944 accounts.
One of the blocked accounts is 'rubinjer'. He placed a counterfeit sex video on which Hillary Clinton could be seen. The same video was posted on porn sites and viewed hundreds of thousands of times.
Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr had previously cleared Russian fake accounts.
