access level modifiers

how do you write access level modifiers?

public class Tweet {
  private String mText;

  public Tweet(String text) {
    mText = text;

  public String getText() {
    return mText;


1 Answer

Access level modifiers include the keywords like public, private, final, etc.

In this particular challenge, you are asked to create a new constant variable with the appropriate access level modifiers. For a constant which can be called off of the class, you would want to use something like:

public static final int MAX_CHARACTERS = 140;
