    After Ann Curry announced her exit as a regular cohost on NBC's Today after 15 years with the morning show, a number of celebrities took to Twitter to wish the veteran journo well in her new role as an anchor-at-large and roving correspondent for NBC News and its many platforms.

    In a few cases, however, some complained about what they felt was her ouster on the heels of rival Good Morning America's recent ratings victory over Today.

    Here's a roundup of the most notable tweets:
