Welcome to the second episode of "The Mediatwits," the new revamped longer form weekly audio podcast from MediaShift. The co-hosts are MediaShift's Mark Glaser along with PaidContent founder Rafat Ali. This week's show looks at the repercussions of the $39 billion buyout of T-Mobile USA by AT&T. Rafat has had both services and will stick by AT&T, but Mark is making the move from AT&T to Verizon. Plus, the authors of the book, "Tweets from Tahrir":http://www.orbooks.com/our-books/tweets-from-tahrir/, were special guests on the show, explaining how they got their book to print so fast. Finally, MediaShift poll results showed that nearly 90% of respondents would not pay for NYTimes.com content at the current high prices.

The co-hosts are MediaShift's Mark Glaser along with PaidContent founder Rafat Ali, who is working on a stealth startup. This week's first beta show was mainly about the new metered pay wall coming to NYTimes.com and its mobile apps. Special guest Steve Outing joined the show to talk about the pay wall as well, expanding on his take on his own blog. Plus, the discussion covered Rafat's recent trip to visit Al Jazeera in Qatar, and everyone's take on cutting the cord to cable TV with recent moves by Facebook and Netflix.
