    Maybe, especially since it's the bottom section it'll have an effect on 
the rest of the structure. You can be real conservative and not use it but you 
might try standing the tower upright and then loosening and retightening all 
the nuts and bolts - maybe the twist will relieve itself in the process. It's 
worth a try. If nothing else it might decrease the twist.
