Registered users can post tweets, but those who are unregistered can only read them, users access Twitter through its website interface, SMS or a mobile device app. Twitter Inc. is based in San Francisco, United States, Twitter was created in March 2006 by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone, and Evan Williams and launched in July. The service rapidly gained worldwide popularity, in 2012, more than 100 million users posted 340 million tweets a day, and 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 described as the SMS of the Internet. As of 2016, Twitter had more than 319 million monthly active users. On the day of the 2016 U. S. presidential election, Twitter proved to be the largest source of breaking news, Twitters origins lie in a daylong brainstorming session held by board members of the podcasting company Odeo.
Jack Dorsey, a student at New York University. The original project name for the service was twttr, an idea that Williams ascribed to Noah Glass, inspired by Flickr. The developers initially considered 10958 as a code, but changed it to 40404 for ease of use. Work on the project started on March 21,2006, when Dorsey published the first Twitter message at 9,50 PM Pacific Standard Time, Dorsey has explained the origin of the Twitter title. we came across the word twitter, and it was just perfect. The definition was a short burst of inconsequential information, and chirps from birds, and thats exactly what the product was. The first Twitter prototype, developed by Dorsey and contractor Florian Weber, was used as a service for Odeo employees. Williams fired Glass, who was silent about his part in Twitters 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 and they called it a social network, they called it microblogging, but it was hard to define, because it didnt replace anything.
There was this path of discovery with something like that, where over time you figure out what it is, Twitter actually 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 eventually came to was Twitter was really more of an information network than it is a social network, the tipping point for Twitters 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, exclusively streaming Twitter messages, remarked Newsweeks Steven Levy

The series aired on ABC from October 1972 to April 1975 for a total of 63 episodes, Kung Fu was preceded by a full-length feature television pilot, an ABC Movie of the Week, which was broadcast on February 22,1972. The series became one of the most popular programs of the early 1970s, receiving widespread critical acclaim. Kung Fu was created by Ed Spielman and produced by Jerry Thorpe, and developed by Herman Miller, who was a writer for, and co-producer of, the series. Many of the used in the series are adapted from or derived directly from the Tao Te Ching. Keye Luke and Philip Ahn were members of the regular cast, David Chow, who was a guest star in the series, acted as the technical and kung fu advisor, a role undertaken by Kam Yuen.

With a price on his head, Caine flees China to the western United States, although it is his intention to avoid notice, Caines training and sense of social responsibility repeatedly force him out into the open, to fight for justice or protect the underdog. After each such encounter he must move on, both to capture and prevent harm from coming to those he has helped. Searching for his family, he meets a preacher and his mute sidekick Sonny Jim, flashbacks are often used to recall specific lessons from Caines childhood training in the monastery from his teachers, the blind Master Po and Master Chen Ming Kan. Part of the appeal of the series was undoubtedly the emphasis laid, via the flashbacks, the Shaolin Monastery which appeared in flashbacks was originally a set used for the 1967 film Camelot. It was inexpensively and effectively converted for the setting in China, in her memoirs, Bruce Lees widow, Linda Lee Cadwell, asserts that Lee created the concept for the series, which was stolen by Warner Bros.
There is circumstantial evidence for this in a December 8,1971 television interview that Bruce Lee gave on The Pierre Berton Show. In the interview, Pierre Berton comments, Theres a pretty good chance youll get a TV series in the States called The Warrior, in it, where you use what. Lee responds, That was the original idea. both of them, I think, they want me to be in a type of a thing. Whereas I want to do the Western, you see, how else can you justify all of the punching and kicking and violence, except in the period of the West. Later in the interview, Berton asks Lee about the problems that you face as a Chinese hero in an American series, have people come up in the industry and said well, we dont know how the audience are going to take a non-American

Fantasy Island is an American television series that originally aired on the American Broadcasting Company network from 1977 to 1984. The series was created by Gene Levitt, a revival of the series originally aired on the same network during the 1998–99 season. Before it became a series, Fantasy Island was introduced to viewers in 1977 and 1978 through two made-for-television films. Roarke was known for his suit and cultured demeanor, and was initially accompanied by an energetic sidekick. Tattoo would run up the bell tower to ring the bell. To announce the arrival of a new set of guests at the beginning of each episode and this line, shown at the beginning of the shows credits, became an unlikely catchphrase because of Villechaizes spirited delivery and French accent. In seasons, he would arrive in his personal go-kart, sized for him, from 1981 to 1982, Wendy Schaal joined the cast as a beautiful brown-eyed blonde assistant named Julie. The producers dismissed Villechaize from the series before the 1983–1984 season, which ended up being its last, lawrences personality was exactly the opposite of Tattoos in many ways.
For instance, Lawrence was responsible for the bell ringing, a Grumman Widgeon aircraft was used for the series. Just prior to the landing, Mr Roarke would address his assembling employees with the phrase Smiles everyone. As each visitor exited the plane, Roarke would describe to Tattoo the nature of their fantasy, Roarke would welcome his guests by lifting his glass and saying, My dear guests, I am Mr. Roarke, your host. This toast was usually followed with a smile but sometimes his eyes would show concern or worry for a guests safety. Very little is known about the man known as Mr. Roarke and it is not clear if that is his first, last, or only name. Although most guests know him as Mr. Roarke, many close to him, including past lovers, have referred to him only as Roarke. He is the owner and proprietor of Fantasy Island. Roarkes actual age is a complete mystery, in the pilot film, he comments how the guests who come to his island are so mortal and there are hints throughout the series that suggest Roarke may be immortal.
In one episode he calls on Helen of Troy to help a woman whose fantasy is not going as planned and she says to him. Where Roarke replies 300 years or more and this shows us that Roarke is in fact immortal and not human
