Clarifying the rumours, Swaraj put out two tweets stating that the news of her new appointment was not true.

"I called on the Vice President of India Shri Venkaiah Naidu ji on demitting office as Minister of External affairs. This was enough for Twitter to appoint me as the Governor of Andhra Pradesh," she tweeted.

Sushma Swaraj, 67, was one of the popular ministers on social media. She was acknowledged for her quick response to SOS and assistance on Twitter. She opted out of the Lok Sabha elections on health grounds. In the Prime Minister Modi’s new cabinet, the Ministry of External Affairs has been assigned to S Jaishankar.
