Beth Myers, the head of Mitt Romney's secretive vice presidential search, kept the mystery alive Friday when she gave a "Friday Follow" shout out to a number of potential running mates for the presumptive Republican nominee.

Tweeting from the handle @BethMyers2012, Myers, who only has one other tweet on her account, sent out a Friday Follow message with the names of six potential vice presidential contenders and one person most people don't even think is being considered for the number two spot.

" #FF @KellyAyotte @timpawlenty @GovChristie @BobbyJindal @marcorubio @RepPaulRyan @newtgingrich," Myers tweeted, spurring a flurry of speculation from reporters on Twitter about the names both on and off the list.

But soon after, Myers, tweeted a second message, rounding out the list with more names widely considered to be on Romney's list.

" #FF @robportman @bobmcdonnell @CondoleezzaRice @johnthune @Gov_Martinez @RickSantorum."

That doesn't exactly narrow it down.

While Romney is on his foreign trip, the Romney campaign has dispatched a number of potential candidates, including Govs. Bobby Jindal, Bob McDonnell, and Tim Pawlenty, Sens. Rob Portman and Marco Rubio, and Rep. Paul Ryan to host events as a means of keeping his message in the news while he's abroad.

But with speculation about who Romney will select at a fever pitch, it seems like Myers may have been having a bit of fun at the expense of all the reporters dissecting every appearance, mention, and now tweets about Romney's future running mate. Thanks for nothing Beth Myers.
