The Winklevoss twins are suing Facebook again. If you saw the film, "The Social Network," you'll remember the very tall and athletic Harvard rowers, Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, referred to as "The Winklevii" by the fictional Mark Zuckerberg. The identical twins, maintaining that Zuckerberg stole their ideas for Facebook from their own social networking site called Harvard Connection, filed a lawsuit. That's the real world way to "unfriend" someone. Now they are suing again because they dispute the valuation used for the settlement they received and according to PCWorld, they are even accusing Mark Zuckerberg of securities fraud.
The Winklevoss Twins received a $65 million settlement from the first lawsuit. Zuckerberg is worth about $6.9 billion so that settlement didn't break the bank. Zuckerberg has recently added his name to Bill Gates'Â "Giving Pledge" and if the Facebook billionaire would indeed give away half of his wealth as promised in the non-binding pledge, that would still leave $3.9 billion or so for the Winklevoss brothers to try and get their hands on. It all seems very unsociable.
