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.
Irrespective of whether you appreciate his style, Arnab quitting Times Now is the biggest media story. That you have to hand to him

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.
OMG! Arnab Goswami quits Times Now? Can't believe it. Hope he will continue his shows from other channels.
