Epic's War of North Carolinian aggression continues apace, as their Chief Executive Officer, Tim Sweeney, takes to Twitter to make sure that each and everyone of you know...that the fight to lower Apple/Google's $300M Fortnite cut to $250M (or less!) is in fact a fight - for the liberty and liberation of all free-thinking people.

But when business folks are silly enough to litigate their troubles on Twitter, you can bet we'll be there (and within the Fortnite)...in Virtual Legality.
