After Mohammed Shami ran through South Africa's middle-order in the second session, Faf du Plessis made sure that the hosts managed to reach a very competitive score of 258 in their 2nd innings. After the Indian top order collapsed again, the Twitterati came out in numbers to do some public bashing.
Brief Scores :South Africa 335 (Aiden Markram 94, Hashim Amla 82; R Ashwin 4/113, Ishant Sharma 3/46) & 258 (AB de Villiers 80, Dean Elgar 61, Mohammed Shami 4/49, Jasprit Bumrah 3/70) lead India 307 (Virat Kohli 153, Morne Morkel 4-60) & 35/3 (Cheteshwar Pujara 11*, Murali Vijay 9; Lungi Ngidi 2/14, Kagiso Rabada 1/9) by 252 runs.
Here are the best tweets from today's action:

Every Indian fan right now
Long way to go for Team India
Many commentators were comparing the current Indian squad with the Australian squad of 2000-2007. Well it seems that our players don't agree with it . #IndvsSA— Manav Asrani (@Real_Mnz) January 16, 2018
This much of rage with that name WOAH!!
Every time Rohit bats overseas
At least bring good commentators so match won’t be boring
Smart move BCCI *slow claps*
The only way India can win overseas!!
When chasing a target in the fourth innings, every Indian batsman should get at least two chances. I hope BCCI considers my suggestion and forces it in the next ICC meet.#INDvSA #INDvsSA #SAvIND #SAvsIND— Moriarty (@DesiOptimystic) January 16, 2018
I think it was mountain, but anyway
That one friend in group who starts random chants
Well FYI, Dhanno didn’t last well in front of Dakus
Well I was hoping for a Shayari
After all, we all are kids at heart
Gabbar trolling in Gabbar way
