The Winklevoss Twins are Suing Mark Zuckerberg Again


The Winklevoss twins— affectionately referred to as “The Winklevii” in The Social Network—are reportedly seeking more cash from Mark Zuckerberg.

The twins received $65 million in a 2008 settlement over their claims that Zuckerberg stole the source code for their dating site Harvard Connection (later renamed ConnectU) and used it to create Facebook.

Sixty-five million is mere pocket change for Zuckerberg, however, and now the twins claim that Facebook’s stock was undervalued in their initial suit. Facebook currently has a net worth of roughly $6.9 billion, and the twins are seeking an unnamed sum of money. Hey, boats are expensive, folks.
