I recommend making the MDN docs your friend. They have everything with very clear descriptions and examples. We as developers get stuck and forget the syntax all the time. This is why the documentation is there for.

It's a good habit to go to the docs as the first step. Because later you'll have much much more complicated problems to solve and there might not be anyone to ask help.

you just need to set the class to <a> <a href="#" class="social-links">Follow me on Twitter!</a>
