Sarah Palin took to Twitter on Friday to question a report that next week she will announce whether or not she will run for president.

A conservative blog said the former governor was "expected within a week to make a decision on whether to enter the 2012 presidential campaign, according to one Republican source."

"Vendors of campaign services who hope to work for Team Palin have been told that Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate, will decide soon one way or another on mounting a 2012 campaign," Robert Stacy McCain wrote Friday on The American Spector blog.

Palin tweeted that it was news to her. "Really? Hmm, guess they forgot to inform me what I'm 'expected to do' next," she wrote.

When McCain updated the post in response to her tweet, he asked the hockey mom whether his source was wrong, but Palin has yet to respond.

A Rasmussen poll released Thursday said that 36% of likely GOP primary voters think it would be good for Republicans if Palin entered the race.
