Add alt attribute text for Twitter. I have, but it's saying I haven't.

I've added the alternate attribute text for Twitter, but it's saying I haven't. I'm wasting time here. What have I missed?

Hey Dustin,

you almost got it right! Just make sure to write a = between the alt attribute and its value like so:

<img src="img/facebook-wrap.png" alt="Facebook logo">
<img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt="Twitter logo">

...and now I feel dumb. Thanks for the quick reply!

No problem and don't feel dumb because of it! :) Those small mistakes happen to all of us, believe me! :)
