On April 15, 2019, Reggie Fils-Aime stepped down as President and COO of Nintendo of America after a long and storied career with the company. Reggie's retirement was met with sadness from Nintendo fans across the globe, who had grown to adore Reggie and his contributions to the Nintendo brand over the years, to the point where he had practically become a living Internet meme.
The fact that Reggie is retiring meant that many fans thought that he would disappear from the public eye as many people do. It seems that Reggie isn't quite done engaging with the world of video games, as he decided to create a Twitter account during his last day in office, which can be found at @Reggie.
As of the time of writing, Reggie has only uploaded three photos to his Twitter page - one showing his badge from E3 2004, a photo of him packing up his office (seen in the cover image above), and a picture of the toy version of Reggie used at E3 2014 for the Robot Chicken sketch, which is carrying a card with his Twitter handle.
The fact that Reggie has created a Twitter account at this late stage suggests that he may not be totally done with the video game industry. It's possible that he will use his Twitter page as an outlet for his views on gaming trends going forward. Reggie might be moving into a business or marketing advisory role in the future and the Twitter page could be an outlet for him to promote himself. It's also possible that he will use the Twitter page to upload hundreds of photos of him partying on the beach, as a lot of retired people do.

It's unclear what kind of content Reggie will be adding to his Twitter page in the future, but he will at least have a place to upload the photos of him ceremonially burning the only English copy of Mother 3 while laughing maniacally as the flames dance in the reflection of his eyes.
Reggie Fils-Aime has been replaced as President/COO of Nintendo of America by Doug Bowser, who is in no way related to the villain from the Super Mario Bros. series.
