AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'groupdict' With mine and Kenneth's code

Here is my code:

line = re.search(r'''
    ^(?P<name>[-\w ]*,\s[-\w ]+)\t # Last an First names
    (?P<email>[-\w\d.+]+,@[-\w\d.]+)\t # Email
    (?P<phone>\(?\d{3}\)?-?\s?\d{3}-\d{4})?\t # Phone number
    (?P<job>[\w\s]+,\s[\w\s.]+)\t? # Job & Company
    (?P<twitter>@[\w\d]+)?$ # Twitter
''', data, re.X|re.M)
print(line)
print(line.groupdict())

Kenneth's code from the project files

line = re.search(r'''
    ^(?P<name>[-\w ]*,\s[-\w ]+)\t  # Last and first names
    (?P<email>[-\w\d.+]+@[-\w\d.]+)\t  # Email
    (?P<phone>\(?\d{3}\)?-?\s?\d{3}-\d{4})?\t  # Phone
    (?P<job>[\w\s]+,\s[\w\s.]+)\t?  # Job and company
    (?P<twitter>@[\w\d]+)?$  # Twitter
''', data, re.X|re.M)
print(line)
print(line.groupdict())

I get the same output None Traceback (most recent call last): File "address_book.py", line 72, in <module> print(line.groupdict()) AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'groupdict'

I saw a few others had the problem but none of the solution worked -thanks

Once I took the , out of your email regex, yours works for me.
