delimiter problem

I have duplicated the code in this video (below). When I run the code I get this error:

tie_reader = csv.reader(tsvin, delimiter=d)

TypeError: "delimiter" must be a 1-character string

code:import csv def open_with_csv(filename, d='/t'): data = [] with open(filename, encoding='utf-8') as tsvin: tie_reader = csv.reader(tsvin, delimiter = d)
for line in tie_reader: data.append(line) return data

data_from_csv = open_with_csv('data.csv') print(data_from_csv[0])

Thanks for any help
