Welcome to the sixth 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 way the news of Osama Bin Laden's death played out over Twitter and other new media, making minor celebrities of "@ReallyVirtual":http://www.twitter.com/ReallyVirtual and "@KeithUrbahn":http://www.twitter.com/keithurbahn.

Our guests this week were two vice presidents at Demand Media, Larry Fitzgibbon and Jeremy Reed, who talked about a new direction for the network of sites -- moving away from user-generated content and adding longer features. Plus, Apple relented on some of its strict terms of service for magazine publishers who want to publish iPad editions, letting Hearst and Conde Nast get access to the data on subscribers.

Welcome to the fifth 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 is about the various social media policies at news organizations, and how they vary from place to place.

Our guest this week is John Tayman, CEO and co-founder of Byliner, a new place for long-form journalism and storytelling. Plus, we follow up on last week's episode about iPhones and iPads tracking people, and look at the MediaShift poll results.

Welcome to the fourth 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 is obsessed with all things Apple -- and iPhone. Apple had a blow-out earnings quarter, nearly doubling its profits and selling more iPhones than ever with the new Verizon iPhone. But the creepy part is the finding by scientists that your iPhone (and iPad) knows your location and has been storing that in a secret file since last June.

Our guest this week is Neal Augenstein, the first major-market radio reporter to give up his bulky equipment and use just an iPhone to do audio and video reports for WTOP-FM and wtop.com in Washington, DC. Plus, there are two new news aggregators and apps, Trove and News.me, that needed a quick take.
