CEO Kaz Hirai is one of the few parody accounts that keeps being legitimately funny which wasn’t a recipe for success compared to other "“parody accounts”"filled with stolen, tasteless memes (remember shigeru miyamoto?) . To stay dedicated to the same level of quality for six years is an achievement I have a lot of respect for.

I never deeply followed this account (parodies aren’t usually my jam of choice), but this one always seemed like a cut above the rest, which are usually either poor attempts to get retweets by confusion (see: the miasma of fake Hideo Kojima accounts) or just not very funny. Totally respect someone deciding to move on because they’ve ran out of steam on it.
