Last week I put on my investigative journalists hat, and set to work finding out what City University MA Journalism students use their mobile devices for. I asked 30 students, all of who have either access to the internet by mobile phone, iPhone or iPad, the one thing (journalistic related) they most regularly do on their device. I have put the results below, and also translated them into a beautiful word cloud.

As you can see, Tweeting is remarkably popular.
