What is tty7 in the commandline?

Why when I type the command who does it show

my_username tty7
my_username pts/0

Shouldn't it just show one? Why am I logged in twice? And what is the difference between tty7 and pts/0?

The difference between the two is actually the answer to both questions posed. See http://askubuntu.com/a/27444/23727
