TV news uses Boston bombing suspect’s Twitter account to report [BREAKING]

The Boston marathon bombing has continue to dominate TV news. There’s a manhunt on the way for the second suspect who’s still at large after the violent turn of events last night. For those hopefully staying safe and indoors in Boston, you can contact the FBI if you have any information by calling 1-800-CALL-FBI. The manhunt and TV news reporting is currently being dominated by trying to understand and learn more about Dzhokar Tsarnaev (who goes by Jahar). Friends from high school and college have confirmed that his Twitter account is @j_tsar, whose over 1,100 tweets are now being analyzed.


Here are some of the most recent tweets. TV news continues to report that he’s tweeted multiple times since the bombing, has called out a fake story and has quoted lyrics. As this story develops it’s extremely interesting to watch this publicly tweeted information become the best picture we have of this person now. In the meantime, we hope everyone stays safe as this hopefully winds down.
