HTML elements can have multiple classes, and they're separated by space. So in this example you have 1 class name that is 2 words, so they need to be connected - in this case by a hyphen. So the class name MUST be "social-links".

Your code right now has your a elements having 2 classes, both "social" and "links"

1) You need to put the class="social-links" and the href="#" in the same opening link tag. 2) You're missing the "-" between "social" and "links". The syntax should be as follows:

<a class="social-links" href="#">Follow me on Twitter!</a> <a class="social-links"> <a href="#">Send me an Email!</a>
