It might not surprise you that celebrities were tweeting pre-, post- and even mid-Seder. Some typed clever quips, while others sent out heartfelt thoughts, including greetings for Easter, which coincides this year with the first days of Passover. Here are some of The Shmooze’s favorite Pesach posts of 140 characters or less:

Susan Orlean (on a pre-Passover flight): On this flight we eat only unleavened peanuts and snack mix, to remember how hastily we went through security.

Joan Rivers: Heading to Melissa’s for Passover. Seders in L.A. are so showbiz – until Elijah arrives, we’ve hired a seat filler from the Oscars.

Leonard Nimoy: Passover. A time for renewal. May we be free of old burdens. LLAP

Ari Shapiro: ‘tis the season to throw out the half jar of horseradish that’s been in my fridge since last Passover & buy a new one. Fa la la la la…

Jeff Greenfield: As Passover nears: wonder how many Gentiles think “Hide the Afikomen” is a double entendre.

Elizabeth Banks: Happy Passover, Tweeps. Preparing to straight dominate our Seder.

Mitt Romney: Ann joins me in wishing everyone sitting down for a Passover Seder a joyous time with family and friends.

Bruce Springsteen: Passover on E Street? Some very dedicated fans held Seder from within Madison Square Garden last night.

Steven Van Zandt: Yes there was a Seder in one of the backstage rooms last night. Russo’s line was Wrecking Matzo Ball!

Andy Borowitz: “Chocolate bunnies? Too obvious. Let’s go with bitter herbs and saltwater.” – The man who invented Passover

Bette Midler: Happy Pesach and Happy Easter to all who are celebrating the season… The brisket’s in the oven and the Alka Seltzer by the sink! Charge!

Michael Bloomberg: Wishing everyone a Happy #Easter and a Chag Kasher V’Sameach!

Dan Levy: Passover is a great holiday if you don’t hate your parents and love being constipated.

Paula Abdul: LOVING this holiday weekend. I’m enjoying my #Passover so much. I truly have some of the most caring, amazing friends & family. :))
