Her social media popularity is a result of her promptness in handling distress calls addressed to her, often by Indians stuck in difficult situations overseas.
This time, the Union external affairs minister came to rescue a Russian man, who was found begging at a Kanchipuram temple in Tamil Nadu.
Swaraj who came across a report in The Hindu soon took to the microblogging site to extend help to the Russian man. She tweeted, "Evangelin - Your country Russia is our time tested friend. My officials in Chennai will provide you all help."

According to The Hindu report, 24-year-old Evangelin had arrived in India with a valid passport and visa on September 24. Travelling to Kancheepuram on Tuesday morning from Chennai and after visiting a few temples, he went to an ATM near the Kumarakottam temple to withdraw money. But as luck would have it, he couldn’t withdraw any as his PIN got locked.
With nowhere to go and language being the biggest barrier, Evangelin was compelled to sit outside the temple and spread out his cap to get some money.
Shocked at the sight of a foreigner begging, the incident was soon reported to the police.
The police found all his documents in place and put him in touch with the Russian embassy. Following this, Sushma Swaraj took over.
And like always, Twitterati praised Swaraj's promptness.
