    Trump took to Twitter to make the announcement official on Friday. It was the first time the announcement was made on Twitter, the Twitter communications team told NBC's "Meet the Press." 

    Newt Gingrich, who was considered a top candidate to be Trump's running mate, shared his reaction with.

    "I think he's a great choice, Mike's a great friend of mine and we share a lot of ideas in common. He's often described himself as a Reagan-Kemp-Gingrich Republican so it's pretty hard to complain," said Gingrich.

    Hillary Clinton responded on Twitter to Trump saying that his pick was "sticking with his dangerous plan for America."

    But Republicans were quick to praise Trump's selection on social media.
