(RNN) - While he's been on the run from the FBI, Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has spent some of that time tweeting.
His account, @J-tsar, shows activity the day of the bombing, and the two days following.
On Monday, he tweeted "Ain't no love in the heart of the city, stay safe people," the same day the FBI says he dropped a bomb at the Boston Marathon that killed three people. "Aint no love in the heart of the city" is the name of a song by Bobby Blue Bland and a song lyric from rapper Jay Z.
Later that same day, he tweeted "There are people that know the truth but stay silent & there are people that speak the truth but we don't hear them cuz they're the minority."
The next day, Tuesday, he tweeted "I'm a stress free kind of guy" and "Nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got something to say but nothing comes out when they move their lips; just a bunch of gibberish."
His tweets stop after Wednesday.
On Thursday, the FBI released photos of Dzhokar, known to friends as Jahar, and his brother Tameralan Tsarnaev, as suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing.
A social media account on the Russian version of Facebook shows he lists his name as "Djohar Tsarnaev," his world view as Islam and his personal priority as "career and money."
