Favorite Tweets from Little Steven Twitter Takeover

Prior to soundcheck for Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band's Wednesday & Friday (9/7 + 9/9) concerts at Citizen's Bank Park, E Street Band guitarist, Little Steven Van Zandt, took over WMGK's Twitter account to answer listener questions.  Instead of answering questions for the 20 minutes that we asked him to, he answered them for over an hour.  On Wednesday night, he even returned to Twitter after soundcheck.  Here were our favorite Tweets that showcase his wit, humor and intelligence.
