The new chief executive of enormous community news and chat site Reddit will be a familiar name to its veteran users - Steve Huffman, aka Spez, co-founded it in 2005.

Almost immediately he took part in an "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) session on the site to discuss Reddit's future with its 164m monthly users, known as Redditors, after a tumultous few months.

Reddit had been led by Ellen Pao, herself a controversial figure in Silicon Valley following a high profile gender discrimination case against a former employer, which she lost.
