A cached profile photo that matches his picture, and tweets from other users he's interacted with suggest that this is the twitter account of 19-year-old Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, the fugitive suspect #2 in the Boston Marathon bombings: @J_tsar. The account is listed under the name "Jahar," which is what classmates called him because his full name was hard to pronounce.

Update: BuzzFeed confirms with a high school classmate of Tsarnaev that this is his twitter account.
"I would confirm this as to being his twitter account. Those users went to my high school," said Stefanie Gardner, of the Rindge Class of 2011.
