UPDATE: Boston police captured Tsarnaev about two hours after I posted this blog.  He’s now in custody of the feds.


19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has a Twitter account.  About now the FBI has probably contacted the people the suspect has communicated with since he opened his account. As I write this blog, law enforcement officers are still looking for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect and the city is on lockdown.

I was looking over Tsarnaev tweets and put together a collection of some of the more interesting ones he’s posted since January 2013. I don’t like reading anything into them, but you do wonder what he was thinking when he wrote a few of them.

There’s a tweet the day of the bombing and the two following days.

If you want to look at all the suspects tweets. Go to @J_tsar

At this hour (5:51pm, April 19) Boston police have no idea where the suspect could be.  Several thousand people are now following Tsarnaev on Twitter.

All wait to see if he will tweet something?

Stay tuned.

  1. Interesting. I will wait to see how this plays out. I don’t trust the FBI.
