Larry Summers: Winklevii Are ‘A—holes’

The encounter in The Social Network between Larry Summers and the Winklevoss twins was, apparently, on the mark. "Rarely, have I encountered such swagger, and I tried to respond in kind," Summers said at Fortune’s Brainstorm Tech conference. "One of the things you learn as a college president is that if an undergraduate is wearing a tie and jacket on Thursday afternoon at three o'clock, there are two possibilities. One is that they're looking for a job and have an interview; the other is that they are an a--hole. This was the latter case." The Winklevoss twins, Cameron and Tyler, had appealed to Summers in their fight against Mark Zuckerberg.
