The Winklevi have been fighting Zuckerberg for 7 years, claiming he jacked their idea for a social network.

The Twins claim Zuckerberg actually screwed them twice -- the second time by hiding documents that could have scored them more than the $65 mil they settled for back in 2008.

The W.T.'s were trying to get a judge to invalidate the settlement so they could renew their fight for more money, but after a series of legal setbacks, they have now officially dropped the case.

According to the final court filing today, the Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss agreed to accept  the settlement of $65 million in stock.

Now here's the good news for The Twins.  The stock has now swelled in value to $100 million.

Invest wisely boys, and stay away from the really smart kids at Harvard.
