Hoda Kotb has officially replaced Matt Lauer as co-anchor of the “Today” show, and Twitter users are celebrating her pairing with Savannah Guthrie this morning.
“G.I.R.L.s are taking over!” the Girl Scouts tweeted of the new all-female setup at the NBC News program.
There was plenty more optimism where that came from. See a sample below.

I told my mom back when #Lauer got fired that, if they were smart, @TODAYshow would go with two women. Hoping that @hodakotb shines now that she’s in the right venue and kicks some ass. #SavannahHodaTODAY

Great choice Today!! Congrats to @TODAYshow for their AWESOME choice of @hodakotb as co-anchor! And not because she's a woman and this is a first, but just because it was the right choice and she earned it thru hard work. #SavannahHodaTODAY #BeProudHalleyJoy

#SavannahHodaTODAY Congrats Ms. Kotb! Now if only we can get more diverse people hosting stuff on t.v. We need more LGBT hosts, 2 males hosts to balance things (not just espn), and more people of color.

good and brave decision by NBC to be the first two-women anchor team; big congrats Hoda – you've been anchor material a long time. #SavannahHodaTODAY

Of course, not everyone was as happy as those people. Here are the thoughts from probably a new “Good Morning America” viewer:
NBC obviously to scared to hire another man for the Today Show and a blatant attack on men. I will watch another channel #savannahhodatoday

That first one should be “t-o-o,” by the way, Mozzy.
