Nun Sister Elizabeth Pio posts Twitter prayers online

A Portsmouth nun has turned to social media to convey her religious messages in-between spending time in silence.

Sister Elizabeth Pio, 41, has begun using Twitter on behalf of the Sisters of Bethany, an Anglican order who spend hours each day in silent reflection.

@bethanysister posts about prayer, saints and current events, including Euro 2012 football matches.
