Old Facebook Adversaries Cameron, Tyler Winklevoss Snag Hollywood Hills Mansion

Brace yourself, Hollywood Hills: The Winklevii are coming. Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, the twin brothers who reached a $65 million settlement with Facebook and Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg after claiming that they came up with the idea for Facebook, dropped $18 million of that cash on a new 8,000-square-foot mansion.

TMZ broke the news on the new Winklevii lair, which will presumably provide them with a better Hollywood experience than their portrayal in The Social Network.

According to TMZ, the brothers are launching a West Coast branch of their startup company, Winklevoss Capital, with Cameron to remain in New York while Tyler sets up camp in the new digs.
