Sean Paul Dillon Tully is a fictional character from the British soap opera Coronation Street, played by Antony Cotton. He made his first appearance during the episode broadcast on 13 July 2003. Following that appearance, the character returned full-time on 12 April 2004. In April 2019, Anthony Cotton revealed that he will be leaving the show, although will be remaining until 2020 in order to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the series. Sean is introduced as a gay colleague of Karl Foster; some months after his first appearance Sean comes to Coronation Street looking for somewhere to live. Karl's ex-boyfriend Todd Grimshaw takes him for a drink at The Rovers; when Todd's mother Eileen Grimshaw meets Sean she offers him a place to stay. Her other son, Jason Grimshaw, is not pleased but warms to the idea. Sean gets a job at Underworld, where he makes friends with Kelly Crabtree. Violet Wilson, Sean's close friend, moves to the Street and begins dating Jamie Baldwin, who Sean becomes close to; when Jamie seems to be losing interest in Violet she fears he is secretly gay, she asks Sean to spend time with him to see if he can find out — unaware that Sean has fallen for Jamie himself.
However, Sean is shocked to discover that Jamie is in love with his stepmother, Frankie Baldwin. Sean supports both Jamie when Violet ends their relationship; when Violet suffers an ectopic pregnancy she is told her chances of conceiving have been reduced. Violet becomes desperate to have a baby and suggests she and Sean should consider having a child together. Sean agrees and, despite her fertility issues, Violet becomes pregnant via self-administered artificial insemination. Sean accompanies Violet to her 12-week scan, where he becomes attracted to the sonographer, Marcus Dent. Violet matchmakes between the two and they begin dating, although they hit a rough patch when Sean tricks Marcus into telling him Violet is expecting a baby boy when she had wanted the gender to be a surprise; when Violet gets back together with Jamie she begins to find Sean's presence during the pregnancy stifling after he lends her and Jamie money for a flat deposit and begins coming and going as he pleases. When Violet realises she is in labour at the Rovers' it is Sean, not Jamie, at her side as Jamie is in London.
Sean is delighted that he was the first person his son saw and bonds with Dylan while Violet is in hospital, upsetting both her and Jamie. Sean suggests calling him "Dylan Wilson-Tully" and asks Violet to put his name on the birth certificate. Violet ignores both suggestions, naming her son "Dylan James Wilson" and putting Jamie's name on the birth certificate. Fed up with Sean being a third wheel and Violet move to London with Dylan, devastating Sean when Violet throws her mobile away so he can't contact her. Sean becomes close friends with Tom Kerrigan, business partner of his boss Carla Connor and begins to develop feelings for him; when Sean tries to kiss Tom, he tells him he is straight and interested in Sean's friend Kelly. Realising things are awkward between Sean and Tom, Marcus questions Sean, who lies and says Tom made a pass at him rather than the other way around. Marcus angrily punches Tom, but is furious to discover Sean was the one in the wrong. With Sean having been jealous at Marcus's friendships with other gay men, Marcus realises there is no trust left in their relationship and departs for London.
After joining a gym with Jason, Sean becomes attracted to fellow member Leon. When Leon mistakenly thinks Jason is Sean's ex-boyfriend Sean doesn't correct him, is pleased that Leon seems happy to hear he is single. However, Sean is left disappointed when it turns out Leon is interested in Jason and "doesn't fancy camp men". Sean decides that he wants to track down Dylan, as his son would now be two years old, he sets up a page using Liz McDonald's identity. However, the scheme backfires when Liz finds out what Sean has done and she fires him from the Rovers, she softens towards him and reinstates him, has a word with Violet on Sean's behalf. Violet agrees to Sean visiting Dylan in London. However, on one of his visits Sean is surprised to see Marcus at Violet's house, unaware they were still in touch; the two realise they still reunite. When Violet and Jamie split Sean begins looking after Dylan more with Dylan living with the pair for several weeks after Violet has a car accident. Marcus suggest they adopt a child of their own.
The issue drives the pair apart, with Sean horrified to discover Marcus has begun a relationship with his close friend Maria Connor, despite having shown no interest in women before. Sean accuses Marcus of only dating Maria to become a father to her son Liam and the two fall out; when Todd returns to Manchester after several years in London, Sean wonders if there is a chance for romance between them. However, Todd is only interested in getting Sean to spend money on him, turns his romantic attentions to Marcus instead. Sean is shocked when he catches Marcus cheating on Maria with Todd and encourages him to be honest with both Maria and himself. Depressed at being alone, Sean goes on a night out to Manchester's gay village with his colleague Sinead Tinker and meets Billy Mayhew (Daniel Broc
Coronation Street is a British soap opera created by Granada Television and shown on ITV since 9 December 1960. The programme centres on Coronation Street in Weatherfield, a fictional town based on inner-city Salford. In the show's fictional history, the street was built in 1902 and named in honour of the coronation of King Edward VII; the show airs six times a week: Monday and Friday 7:30-8 pm and 8:30-9 pm. Since 2017, ten sequential classic episodes of the series from 1986 onwards have been broadcast weekly on ITV3; the programme was conceived in 1960 by scriptwriter Tony Warren at Granada Television in Manchester. Warren's initial kitchen sink drama proposal was rejected by the station's founder Sidney Bernstein, but he was persuaded by producer Harry Elton to produce the programme for 13 pilot episodes. Within six months of the show's first broadcast, it had become the most-watched programme on British television, is now a significant part of British culture; the show has been one of the most lucrative programmes on British commercial television, underpinning the success of Granada Television and wider ITV network.
Coronation Street is made by Granada Television at MediaCityUK and shown in all ITV regions, as well as internationally. On 17 September 2010, it became the world's longest-running television soap opera and was listed in Guinness World Records. On 23 September 2015, Coronation Street was broadcast live to mark ITV's sixtieth anniversary. Influenced by the conventions of the kitchen sink drama, Coronation Street is noted for its depiction of a down-to-earth, working-class community, combined with light-hearted humour and strong characters; the show averages 8 million viewers per episode. The first episode was aired on 9 December 1960 at 7 pm, was not a critical success. Granada Television had commissioned only 13 episodes, some inside the company doubted the show would last beyond its planned production run. Despite the criticism, viewers were drawn into the serial, won over by Coronation Street's ordinary characters; the programme made use of Northern English language and dialect. Early episodes told the story of student Kenneth Barlow, who had won a place at university, thus found his working-class background—as well as his parents and Ida —something of an embarrassment.
The character was one of the few to have experienced life outside of Coronation Street. In some ways this predicts the growth of globalisation, the decline of similar communities. In an episode from 1961, Barlow declares: "You can't go on just thinking about your own street these days. We're living with people on the other side of the world. There's more to worry about than Elsie Tanner and her boyfriends." Roache is the only remaining member of the original cast, which makes him the longest-serving actor in Coronation Street, in British and global soap history. At the centre of many early stories, there was Ena Sharples, caretaker of the Glad Tidings Mission Hall, her friends: timid Minnie Caldwell, bespectacled Martha Longhurst; the trio were likened to the Greek chorus, the three witches in William Shakespeare's Macbeth, as they would sit in the snug bar of the Rovers Return, passing judgement over family and each other. Headstrong Ena clashed with Elsie Tanner, whom she believed espoused a dauntlessly loose set of morals.
Elsie resented Ena's gossip, which most of the time had little basis in reality. In April 1961, Jed Stone made his first appearance and returned the following year in 1962, he left in 1963, but returned three years in 1966. He left again and returned 42 years in 2008. In March 1961, Coronation Street reached No. 1 in the television ratings and remained there for the rest of the year. Earlier in 1961, a Television Audience Measurement showed that 75% of available viewers tuned into Corrie, by 1964 the programme had over 20 million regular viewers, with ratings peaking on 2 December 1964, at 21.36 million viewers. Storylines throughout the decade included a mystery poison-pen letter received by Elsie Tanner, the 1962 marriage of Ken Barlow and Valerie Tatlock, the death of Martha Longhurst in 1964, the birth of the Barlow twins in 1965, Elsie Tanner's wedding to Steve Tanner and a train crashing from the viaduct, Steve Tanner's murder in 1968, a coach crash in 1969. In spite of rising popularity with viewers, Coronation Street was criticised by some for its outdated portrayal of the urban working class, its representation of a community, a nostalgic fantasy.
After the first episode in 1960, the Daily Mirror printed: "The programme is doomed from the outset... For there is little reality in this new serial, which we have to suffer twice a week." By 1967, critics were suggesting that the programme no longer reflected life in 1960s Britain, but reflected how life was in the 1950s. Granada hurried to update the programme, with the hope of introducing more issue-driven stories, including Lucille Hewitt becoming addicted to drugs, Jerry Booth being in a storyline about homosexuality, Emily Nugent having an out-of-wedlock child, introducing a black family, but all of these ideas were dropped for fear of upsetting viewers; the show's production team was tested when many core cast members left the programm
Todd Grimshaw is a fictional character from the British soap opera Coronation Street, played by Bruno Langley. The character's debut on-screen was broadcast on 14 January 2001, he was introduced as part of the Grimshaw family, formed around the established character Eileen Grimshaw. Todd was the show's first gay character which generated much coverage in the British media; the coming out storyline was credited for helping Coronation Street portray a more accurate depiction of society in the twenty-first century. The character's storylines have focused on his relationships with Sarah-Louise Platt, Karl Foster, Marcus Dent and Billy Mayhew. Langley decided to leave the show in 2004 but returned for brief appearances in 2007 and 2011; the actor agreed to reprise the role on a permanent basis in 2013. Todd remained a part of the series until Langley's contract was terminated following criminal accusations made against Langley; the character made his final onscreen appearance on 22 December 2017. The Grimshaws are portrayed as arguing rivals in their scenes.
Todd and his brother Jason Grimshaw are portrayed as "bickering brothers". Jason is cheeky to their mother, Eileen Grimshaw. Thomas told a reporter from Soaplife. In 2007, Thomas told Derek Robins of The Sun that "Jason and Todd have a great bond as brothers and after all family is what Corrie is all about." He added that Jason accepts his sexuality and wants to spend more time with Todd. Todd begins a relationship with Candice Stowe, before romancing Sarah-Louise Platt, she ends their relationship because she wants to date Aidan "Ade" Critchley. Langley and O'Brien were in a relationship and she told Frances Traynor from the Daily Record that acting out their break-up was not strange. Todd resumes his previous relationship with Candice, but Todd soon returns to Sarah. She decides to sleep with Todd on her sixteenth birthday; the storyline was controversial and nine viewers contacted the Independent Television Commission. The organisation cleared Coronation Street of breaching guidelines, they praised them for building a relationship between the two characters and viewed it as a mature decision.
Prior to this, Langley's friends would tease him. O'Brien told Steve Hendry from the Sunday Mail that Sarah is "a bit dependent on Todd". In June 2003, Alex Tate from The People reported. Sarah fears, but Sarah and Todd move into a flat together. Sarah's daughter Bethany Platt electrocutes; the accident prompts Gail Platt to involve social services. In March 2003, Polly Graham from the Sunday Mirror reported that executive producer Kieran Roberts wanted Todd to become the show's first gay character; the show confirmed that had discussed the possibility but nothing has been decided upon. On 22 August 2003, it was reported that Todd would befriend Sarah's brother, Nick Tilsley and kiss him, but he does not reciprocate. A show spokesperson said that the storyline was a "groundbreaking move" and predicted a varied and "huge reaction" from viewers, they told a reporter from the Liverpool Echo. They added that "the storyline came out of the character, it is being handled sensitively." In October a spokesperson commented.
It's not a case of having a gay kiss just for titillation's sake. Todd will continue to struggle with his feelings, not for Nick, but general confusion over his sexuality." Fourteen million viewers watched the kiss and sixteen complaints were filed. Emily Smith from The Sun reported that Todd would begin an affair; the director of Mediawatch-uk, John Beyer told Smith that". This scene seems to be calculated as a ratings ploy." David Allison, from LGB group OutRage!, said he welcomed the storyline because it was a departure from gay stereotypes. The decision was made to film the scenes in the center of Canal Street; as the kiss was filmed revelers on the street cheered at the actors. Langley was worried about portraying the issue led story correctly, he told Billy Sloan of the Sunday Mail that the crowd approval made him believe he was doing in right. Filming inside the street's nightclubs was carried out while actual drinkers were having their nights out. Thirty extras were hired to make the clubs look busier.
Langley thought the location shoot was advantageous because "it gave you a real feeling of the atmosphere. It was different from being on the normal Corrie set." A spokesperson added. While kissing Karl; the storyline sparks a fight between Gail. Eileen attacks Gail after she brands Todd a "two-timing, lying pervert"; the two proceed to pull each other's hair out in the street. In May 2004, it was announced, he felt it was the correct time to leave. Producers did not expect Langley to leave and had planned his sexuality storyline for two years in advance, they were shocked by the actor's decision to leave and had to revise the storyline to facilitate Langley's impending departure. They decided not to kill Todd making it possible for Langley to reprise th

Twitter is an American online news and social networking service on which users post and interact with messages known as "tweets". Tweets were restricted to 140 characters, but on November 7, 2017, this limit was doubled for all languages except Chinese and Korean. Registered users can post and retweet tweets, but unregistered users can only read them. Users access Twitter through its website interface, through Short Message Service or its mobile-device application software. Twitter, Inc. is based in San Francisco and has more than 25 offices around the world. Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, Evan Williams and launched in July of that year; the service gained worldwide popularity. In 2012, more than 100 million users posted 340 million tweets a day, the service handled an average of 1.6 billion search queries per day. In 2013, it was one of the ten most-visited websites and has been described as "the SMS of the Internet"; as of 2018, Twitter had more than 321 million monthly active users.
Since 2015 Twitter has been a hotbed of debates and news covering politics of the United States. During the 2016 U. S. presidential election, Twitter was the largest source of breaking news on the day, with 40 million election-related tweets sent by 10:00 p.m. that day. It was a source of information on Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination and the 2018 United States midterm elections. Twitter's origins lie in a "daylong brainstorming session" held by board members of the podcasting company Odeo. Jack Dorsey an undergraduate student at New York University, introduced the idea of an individual using an SMS service to communicate with a small group; the original project code name for the service was twttr, an idea that Williams ascribed to Noah Glass, inspired by Flickr and the five-character length of American SMS short codes. The decision was partly due to the fact that the domain twitter.com was in use, it was six months after the launch of twttr that the crew purchased the domain and changed the name of the service to Twitter.
The developers considered "10958" as a short code, but changed it to "40404" for "ease of use and memorability". Work on the project started on March 21, 2006, when Dorsey published the first Twitter message at 9:50 p.m. Pacific Standard Time: "just setting up my twttr". Dorsey has explained the origin of the "Twitter" title:...we came across the word'twitter', it was just perfect. The definition was'a short burst of inconsequential information,' and'chirps from birds', and that's what the product was. The first Twitter prototype, developed by Dorsey and contractor Florian Weber, was used as an internal service for Odeo employees and the full version was introduced publicly on July 15, 2006. In October 2006, Biz Stone, Evan Williams and other members of Odeo formed Obvious Corporation and acquired Odeo, together with its assets — including Odeo.com and Twitter.com — from the investors and shareholders. Williams fired Glass, silent about his part in Twitter's startup until 2011. Twitter spun off into its own company in April 2007.
Williams provided insight into the ambiguity that defined this early period in a 2013 interview: With Twitter, it wasn't clear what it was. They called it a social network, they called it microblogging, but it was hard to define, because it didn't replace anything. There was this path of discovery with something like that, where over time you figure out what it is. Twitter changed from what we thought it was in the beginning, which we described as status updates and a social utility, it is that, in part, but the insight we came to was Twitter was more of an information network than it is a social network. The tipping point for Twitter's popularity was the 2007 South by Southwest Interactive conference. During the event, Twitter usage increased from 20,000 tweets per day to 60,000. "The Twitter people cleverly placed two 60-inch plasma screens in the conference hallways streaming Twitter messages," remarked Newsweek's Steven Levy. "Hundreds of conference-goers kept tabs on each other via constant twitters.
Panelists and speakers mentioned the service, the bloggers in attendance touted it." Reaction at the conference was positive. Blogger Scott Beale said. Social software researcher danah boyd said. Twitter staff received the festival's Web Award prize with the remark "we'd like to thank you in 140 characters or less, and we just did!"The first unassisted off-Earth Twitter message was posted from the International Space Station by NASA astronaut T. J. Creamer on January 22, 2010. By late November 2010, an average of a dozen updates per day were posted on the astronauts' communal account, @NASA_Astronauts. NASA has hosted over 25 "tweetups", events that provide guests with VIP access to NASA facilities and speakers with the goal of leveraging participants' social networks to further the outreach goals of NASA. In August 2010, the company appointed Adam Bain from News Corp.'s Fox Audience Network as president of revenue. The company experienced rapid initial growth, it had 400,000 tweets posted per quarter in 2007.
This grew to 100 million tweets posted per quarter in 2008. In February 2010, Twitter users were sending 50 million tweets per day. By March 2010, the company recorded over 70,000 registered applications; as of June 2010, about 65 million tweets were posted each day, equaling about 750 tweets sent each second, according to Twitter. As of March 2011, about 140 million tweets posted daily; as noted on Compete.com, Twitter moved up to the third-highest-ranking social networking site
