Arnab Goswami is a household name, in most parts of urban India. The News Hour Debate at 9 PM is a highly anticipated show every weekday, by not only those who are avid followers of the ‘Arnab’ brand of debates, but also by those who love to slam the anchor for his aggressive views. But all that is about to change, and very soon! If a report by The News Minute is to be believed, then Arnab Goswami has quit as Times Now and ET Now Editor-in-Chief. Goswami has reportedly announced his resignation at an editorial meet.
With the report out, it took less than a minute for Twitterati to erupt with reactions, both positive and negative. But in all of this, the ones that stand out are the witty takes on Arnab’s decision, and its likely fallout! From wondering how Prime Minister Narendra Modi will react, to wondering what will happen to ear plug manufacturers, Twitterati is at its funniest best..here are some tweets that will leave you with a stitch on your side from laughing.

Arnab Goswami is widely credited for taking Times Now to new highs, and his two shows, The News Hour Debate and Frankly Speaking with Arnab, were often seen as trendsetters. His most recent interview that had invited wrath and praises, in equal measure, was with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In a rare instance, Goswami had written a blog, slamming his contemporaries, who had targeted him for the ‘meek’ questions he posed to PM Modi.
