10 Things the Media Either Gets Wrong or Doesn’t Know About the Winklevoss Twins

  • The Winklevoss twins lost another round in their legal battle against Mark Zuckerberg today, but according to their lawyer, they aren’t giving up yet. Our newest team member, Foster Kamer, has corresponded in the past with Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss for a story about their thoughts on Mark Zuckerberg. They responded instead with the following email,  which seeks to educate members of the public and the media on these oft misunderstood monozygotes.

    From Cameron and Tyler:

    Hey Foster,

    Talked it over, and thought that perhaps doing a “10 things you probably don’t know about the Winklevoss” or “10 Things the media either gets wrong or doesn’t know about the Winklevoss twins” might be best format.

    I think you should change the title to refer to “10 thing the media either gets wrong or doesn’t know about the Winklevi”.

     i think that anyone has the right  to have an idea but when some one  nicely invites u 2  help and offers a nice deal you have the right 2 accept it of regects  it but 2 take it and make it your own for popularity is ingenius cause you simply did not have the same idea or you would have done it first they trusted u and 4 the justice in this case was blinded by billions$$$$$$ best wishes 2 both partys allthough without the cofounder input  it never would have been launched. face book is just another site in a world that is bigger than its site therefor many new ideas could be launched on this information highway so i heard there going  2 close the face on the book with a new look lol…….
