A Look At Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's Twitter Account

In reverse chronological order, here's a selection of tweets sent from the Twitter account believed to be Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's, the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.

Several tweets were posted on the day of the bombings, Marathon Monday, and in the days that followed, before Tsarnaev engaged law enforcement officials in a nearly 24-hour-long manhunt that culminated in his arrest late on April 19.

The @J_tsar tweets are a mixture of crude, mundane, silly and sometimes ominous — particularly the tweets sent around the time of the bombings. A selection:

April 17: Two days after the bombings

April 12: Three days before the bombings

April 6: Nine days before the bombings
