TNAnonymous/TNA Twittergate update: Hogan contradicts himself, Bischoff blames Bubba

From today's update:

Hulk Hogan, calling up Bubba the Love Sponge from the hospital (he's having another back operation today) this morning and added more to the hilarity about the twitter.  Yesterday morning Hogan was on the show, saying he had a new twitter account and Bubba said Eric Bischoff set it up for him, Hogan today said that he had no twitter account, but he will have one soon, and that he's having Bubba set it up for him and Bubba will break the news on the name.  There is also a site called @HulkHoganCom listed as being owned by Darren Prince, who is Hogan's marketing agent.  Hogan today said Prince handles all of his professional representation and Bubba handles everything else, but that he had never talked to Prince about a twitter account (thanks to Christopher Porter)

Hulk Hogan had spoken to Bischoff and Bubba the Love Sponge about setting up an official Hogan web site and Twitter account earlier in the week. The three agreed to have Bubba the Love Sponge's IT department help Hogan with the web site and Twitter. Bubba the Love Sponge posted a link to the supposed Hogan Twitter account early on Wednesday. Bischoff saw this and assumed it to be real.

"I have not talked to Bubba about the post," Bischoff said when asked why Bubba the Love Sponge posted an unverified account. Bischoff wished he verified with Hogan that the account was real. Bischoff did not explain the coincidence of both the fake account and Bubba the Love Sponge talking about a meeting.

"It is probably a 16-year-old dweeb that doesn't have anything better to do," Bischoff said about who could be behind the fake account. "I am 99% sure that there is no validity behind it and the person does not work for TNA."

I still have no idea what the hell happened.
