The editor of one of India's biggest newspapers, The Hindu, officially resigned on Monday. How do we know? He did it on Twitter.


We've seen lots of creative ways to quit your job lately, but this one is definitely up there. Siddharth Varadarajan took over as editor of the Hindu in 2011, sparking feud among the family members of the newspapers owners who wanted to keep the paper within the family. But now it appears the paper is going back it its old ways, appointing former editor-in-chief N. Ram as the new chairman, along with his two brothers N. Murali and N. Ravi as co-chairman and editor-in-chief, respectively.

Here are some responses to the news on Twitter:
