The buzz around The Social Network is just not dying — so much so that Indian superstar Shah Rukh Khan is also producing a desi rip off on the same, the Winklevoss Twins – Cameron and Tyler, who accuse Mark Zuckerberg of stealing the Facebook idea from them, shared their story with Piers Morgan of CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight.

“We were absolutely the originators of the idea… Where he (Zuckerberg) is today is because we approached him with our idea and two years of work,” said Cameron. “There’s nothing normal about the way he conducted business. He broke the law and that’s why he got ahead… he wronged us,” he added.
The Harvard-grads have been constantly claiming Zuckerberg stole their Facebook idea. They even sued him and famously got $60 million.

“What we agreed to and what we got are two different things. Facebook shortchanged us on the stock,” said Tyler.

Added Cameron, “That’s the basis of us challenging the settlement agreement that we entered into in 2008 right now.”
