An Israeli university student has opened a Twitter site, twitter.com/thekotel, where prayers can be sent for placement in the crevices of Jerusalem's Western Wall, a Jewish holy site that faithful believe provides a direct line to the Almighty.

'I take their prayers, print them out and drive to Jerusalem to put them in the Western Wall,' said Alon Nir, a resident of Tel Aviv.

Nir promises to deliver the prayers -- each no longer than a tweet's maximum 140 characters -- on a regular basis.

Prayers, which are sent via a direct message link on Nir's Twitter site, cannot be viewed by the public.

At the Western Wall, where he placed some 1,000 rolled-up papers, Nir told Reuters: 'People trusted me with their innermost feelings and secret thoughts ... and it's my duty to provide them with what I promised.'
