Reddit has banned 944 accounts including ones that were promoting a fake Hillary Clinton porn video.

One video, purporting to be a "leaked Hillary Clinton hotel sex tape" is reported to have been created by Russia's Internet Research Agency.

It was posted on Reddit by a now-banned account called Rubinjer, whose posts gained more than 100,000 upvotes.

The same video was posted on PornHub five times and was viewed more than 250,000 times, according to NBC News.

In October, a whistleblower from the Internet Research Agency, a former employee called Alan Baskaev, told Russia's TV Rain that the troll farm had created the fake Hillary Clinton porn video.

The video had not been otherwise tied to a troll farm account until Reddit released usernames tied to the Russia-linked agency on Tuesday.

In an announcement to its users, Reddit said that 944 accounts, including Rubinjer, had been banned for "suspected Russian Internet Research Agency origin."

This was the first time the firm had named any of the accounts, 71 of which had over 1,000 lifetime "upvotes" on the site.

Reddit is the fourth most-visited website in the United States, according to the web analytics company Alexa.

Before the 2016 election, Rubinjer posted an animated Gif of the video to r/The_Donald, the largest pro-Trump community on the platform.

Links to the video and gif have now been deleted.

However, The Princess and the Fox was written not by the brothers, who died over 150 years ago, but by humans using an artificial intelligence (AI) tool. It's the first fairy tale written by an AI, claims Calm, and is the result of a collaboration with Botnik Studios - a community of writers, artists and developers. Calm says the technique could be referred to as "literary cloning". Botnik employees used a predictive-text program to generate words and phrases that might be found in the original Grimm fairytales. Human writers then pieced together sentences to form "the rough shape of a story", according to Jamie Brew, chief executive of Botnik. The full version is available to paying customers of Calm, but here's a short extract: "Once upon a tim..
