There's been a whole lot of chatter about the Facebook IPO today. However, there's not been much from the Winklevoss Twins, the Harvard duo that founded ConnectU, and made cinematic history in The Social Network with Armie Hammer's portrayal of them.

The twins are regularly engaged on Twitter, giving the world a glimpse into their TV viewing habits and animal preferences:

#gameofthrones is hands down the best show on television. Absolutely mesmerizing! (Full disclosure: Just watched 3 episodes in a row)

However, they have not had much to say on this historic day for Facebook, the company founded by their arch-nemesis Mark Zuckerberg. Tyler did retweet a couple of related posts:

But no actual commentary from the twins. Granted, the day is not over yet. Nothing from ConnectU partner Divya Narendra either.

The Winklevoss Twins, however, recently started their own venture capital company, and are apparently on the lookout for programmers.
