Tyler Winklevoss, half of the Winklevoss twins, which have been in an ongoing legal battle with Facebook, posted a snarky tweet today, after news came out of Paul Ceglia suing Facebook and revealing alleged email exchanges he shared with Zuckerberg.

One of the alleged emails from Zuckerberg to Ceglia reads:

I have recently met with a couple of upperclassmen here at Harvard that are planning to launch a site very similar to ours. If we don’t make a move soon, I think we will lose the advantage we would have if we release before them. I've stalled them for the time being and with a break if you could send another $1000 for the facebook (sic) project it would allow me to pay my roommate or Jeff to help integrate the search code and get the site live before them. Please give me a call so that we can talk more about this.

Winklevoss tweeted:

In an e-mail dated Nov. 22, 2003, Zuckerberg allegedly told Ceglia: “I (cont) 7 hours ago via TwitLonger Beta · powered by @socialditto

Excellent use of the hashtag. Look at how many have jumped on board:

The message does reflect a certain "fictional" movie starring Jesse Eisenberg and a pair of Armie Hammers.

Coincidentally, the Winklevoss twins have been the subject of some Facebook twittering today, as well (from the PR department):

I really love the word douchebag. It's so descriptive and useful for select individuals. 8 hours ago via Twitter for iPhone · powered by @socialditto

Randi Zuckerberg chimed in as well:

Totally agree @brandee (re: douchebag) Got honked @ today. At 9mos preggo I was taking "too long to climb into my car" & guy wanted my spot. 3 hours ago via web · powered by @socialditto

One can't help but visualize Armie Hammer sitting at a computer in an office finding out that Facebook has been name calling.
