Reddit CEO Steve Huffman defends controversial API changes

Notably, Huffman left several key questions unanswered, including inquiries about the pricing of the API and the upcoming subreddit blackout in protest of the API changes. Over 3,000 subreddits have pledged to go dark for two days starting from June 12th to demonstrate their opposition.

By the end of the AMA, Huffman had responded to 14 questions, while other executives provided a few answers. Interestingly, the Reddit team’s replies received significant downvotes within the AMA thread, making them difficult to view. A moderator later provided a consolidated link to all their answers at the top of the thread, acknowledging the challenge users faced in finding their responses.
