In 2012, the VP pick isn’t really official until he has an official running mate Twitter account.
Mitt Romney welcomed @PaulRyanVP to Twitter shortly after the “Mitt’s VP” app announced his VP pick.
I am proud to announce @PaulRyanVP as my VP. Stand with us today. http://t.co/0lH4WbTW #RomneyRyan2012

The account launched on August 2, one day after Mitt Romney made the VP decision.
