#ByeByeSmriti: Twitter loves Smriti Irani. Her exit, more so

Smriti Irani\'s shunting out from the heavyweight HRD ministry to the low-profile textiles ministry was definitely the biggest highlight of the reshuffle in Prime Minister Narendra Modi\'s cabinet. Many media reports have given different explanations for the move, from a possible bigger role in Uttar Pradesh to a cut down to size. Whatever the reason, Irani has once again created huge buzz, especially on social media.

Twitter had a field day, with hashtag #ByeByeSmriti trending for hours. Most tweets with this hashtag mocked Irani\'s controversial tenure in the HRD ministry.

01
From hailing her removal as the best decision of the Modi government
02
To welcoming this as good news for students
03
From mocking her over allegations of a saffron-ising agenda
04
To linking her new job with Modi's infamous self-monogrammed suit
05
From a clever pun on her new job and her destiny
06
To linking it with patriarchal attitudes, in a lighter vein
07
From calling her the 'queen' of controversies,
08
To recalling the Telegraph newspaper's rather special coverage of her tenure
09
From quips on the possible 'sanskritisation' of clothes under her
10
To forgiving the Modi government for the black money 'jumlas'
11
From mocking her alleged lack of educational qualifications
12
To recalling her aversion to terms of 'endearment'
13
And finally, a warm send-off
