Reggie Fils-Aime retires at Nintendo, opens Twitter account

15 April 2019 – by Jack Dawson Taylor

On his last day as Nintendo of America's President and COO, Reggie Fils-Aimé has opened his own Twitter account.

After more than 15 years at Nintendo of America - 13 as its President, COO, and chief meme machine - Reggie Fils-Aimé has marked his retirement by joining Twitter.

His first tweet included the figure of him included in the Nintendo Digital Event from E3 2014 alongside his Twitter handle - @Reggie - and he has since posted a photo from his last day in the office and of his exhibitor badge from E3 2004, when his popularity began to soar.

Nintendo of America's new President and COO, Doug Bowser, can also be found on Twitter @thetruebowser.
