Mark Zuckerberg says The Social Network is an inaccurate portrayal, but the Winklevoss twins disagree

by Knowlton Thomas

Mark Zuckerberg and the "Winklevi," as his actor calls them in hollywood flick The Social Network, shared very different opinions in the movie. And so it seems that they also share different opinions of the movie.

Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss did receive large settlements after legal disputes outlined in the movie, but are suing the social network site yet again, now stating that the company's value was not correct in their monetary compensation, and that relevant documents were withheld, according to The Globe and Mail.

Mark Zuckerberg has said multiple times that the movie is dramatized, and does not accurately portray himself or Facebook's history. But the Winklevoss twins beg to differ. They told The Globe that they were pleased with the way they were portrayed, saying that “It does a great job of capturing the factual events of the 18 months of the founding of Facebook. It is a true story."

The wins say that they never spoke with the film writer nor the author of the book on which the film was based. “We were basically bystanders," Cameron told the paper. "We were hoping for the best. And we were relieved when we saw the movie."
