The shocking resignation of Arnab Goswami from his position as President-News & Editor-in-Chief, Times Now and ET Now, has sent shockwaves throughout the country with people taking to social platforms to express their disbelief, question the decision or even to just have some fun.
By late night on Tuesday, hashtags like #arnabresigns and #arnabgoswami were already trending worldwide with some asking for a minute of noise, others raising questions about how Times Now would do, now that the face of the channel and its star attraction is no longer associated with it, while still others suggesting that a career in the army or as a SC judge beckons.
A number of prominent personalities also took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the tremendous legacy that Goswami leaves behind with Times Now where his show Newshour broke a number of previously held conventions about news reporting while establishing itself as the numero uno primetime news show on TV.
And then of course there were those who took this opportunity to show their more creative side.
Strangely, the media fraternity chose to not make any comments with prominent news personalities Vikram Chandra, Barkha Dutt, Ravish Kumar, Sagarika Ghose, Rahul Kanwal, etc. remaining silent.
