Reggie reveals his new Twitter account to the world

A couple of months ago, it was announced that popular Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime would be retiring on April 15.

As Reggie Fils-Aime says goodbye to Nintendo of America on Monday, he's offered up a new way for fans to keep in touch: via his new personal Twitter account.

The first tweet from Reggie is of an action-figure of him holding a sign with his Twitter handle. At the time of publication, Fils-Aime's account had nearly 200,000 followers.

Brett Brown is one of the better coaches in the league, and it'll be interesting to see what adjustments he makes between games. Now with home court advantage, the Nets look to steal another road game and go back to Brooklyn with a commanding 2-0 lead.

Yet, it appears that Reggie is going to stick around in other ways. At the time of this writing, Reggie's first Twitter post has almost 6,000 comments, over 18,000 re-tweets, and over 60,000 hearts. He's already putting it to good use by sharing some photos of himself packing up his office.

His third tweet features an image of his badge from 2004's E3, with text reading: "The legend started here". Fils-Aime's retirement means he'll no longer serve as the face of the company's North American operations, as he has for the past decade.

Fils-Aime's successor as Nintendo of America president is Doug Bowser, who previously served as the company's senior VP of sales and marketing.
