Here are some of the key moments from Day 4 of testimony in the Boston Marathon bombing trial.

You can see all of WBUR’s updates from Tuesday's testimony here.


-During cross examination, defense attorney Miriam Conrad went hard after FBI Agent Steven Kimball in response to testimony he gave Monday about Tsarnaev's two Twitter accounts.



Conrad went on to explain that several tweets discussed in court Monday were pop culture references and rap lyrics.






-Conrad also pointed out that during Monday's testimony Kimball misidentified a photo on Tsarnaev's second Twitter account as a picture of Mecca. It was actually a picture from Grozny, Chechnya.

-Photos of the note Tsarnaev wrote while hiding in the boat in Watertown were shown to the jury. Prosecutors say the note explains Dzhokhar and his brother Tamerlan's rationale for the bombings. (See more photos of the note and a transcript here.)

-As court came to a close Tuesday, prosecutors wheeled in at least 15 boxes of evidence containing hundreds of exhibits to be sorted through and presented on Wednesday.
