Here's a selection of the best tweets:

Should Sasikala now be called Jail Lalitha? — S Ramachandran (@indiarama) February 14, 2017
In a stunning reversal of fortunes, now Sasikala is captive, and the MLAs are free. — Ramesh Srivats (@rameshsrivats) February 14, 2017
Some are hoping no side gets 117.
OPS hasn't shown the ability.
Can sasikala hold her group together & make a move?
Else bye bye AIDMK!
