Modi's three-day visit to Israel is the first by an Indian prime minister to the Jewish state. Of course, the Twitterverse had plenty to say about it.

Many Twitter users hailed Modi for initiating the trend of visiting Israel.

Israel PM welcomed Modi in Hindi. please.. Please.. Dont call it as Hindi imposition. #ModiInIsrael

An important query came from one user who asked why Benjamin Netanyahu did not follow Modi's Twitter handle.

Common interests between India and Israel were ventured. But sarcasm was no stranger to the Twitterverse on Tuesday. Similarities between the agendas of the two government's were essentially touched upon.

However, Congress was not left forgotten. Twitteratti made sure enough light was shed on the party.

Another Twitter user raised concern over lack of reaction from the student activisits at Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University.

Paresh Rawal's parody account also had demanded a reaction from Rahul Gandhi, which the BJP member of Parliament also shared on his actual account.

Another Twitter user poked fun at the embrace shared between the two prime ministers.

  The recently-implemented Goods and Services Tax also found its way into the discourse on Modi's maiden visit.

Exchanges between the two prime ministers were also kept open for discussion.

Meanwhile, Congress tried unleashing a controversy on the micro-blogging site involving the NDA government to which a user had quite an interesting solution.
