Facebook Suit: Why Won't the Winklevoss Twins Let It Go?


Winklevoss Twins Are Used to Taking the Long Haul for Victory, Psychiatrist Says

While "serial litigants" tend to pursue legal action against different parties, as opposed to multiple legal actions against just one, Levy said it's possible that some parts of the profile could apply to the Winklevoss brothers.

"People like this will appeal as far as they can," he said, adding that for the Winklevosses, "they seem to have a great sense of entitlement, and even a royal sense of entitlement, and that the normal rules do not apply to them."

Like true Olympians -- the twins rowed for the United States in the 2008 Olympic Games -- who know how to focus their attention and push hard for their goal, Levy said, but it's possible that the level of single-minded discipline required for competitive sport has morphed into a life-consuming focus on Facebook.

"These are people who are used to winning, and they're willing to take the long haul to win and they've got the focus to do that," he said.
