On Friday (Oct. 30), Jacob lit up the Twitterverse by doing his first live chat while en route to a show. Fans tweeted Jacob questions throughout the day and he answered them for a full hour to show all of his fans the love. Some questions were serious, some were … well … not … but everyone involved had a blast and got to know Jacob a little better. Below, please find the questions and answers from the #JDChat.
