It looks like you mistyped the class name.

The challenge asked you to add the class "social-links" (with a hyphen), but you wrote "#social links" (with a "#" and a space) instead.

It also appears that you erased the href attributes and the closing ">" symbol of the tags.

Try again, and be careful not to remove anything as you add the class attributes with the correct name.

To assign a class, it only has to go inside the quotes. It does not need the # symbol. Also, they should be one string without spaces, so you would need a dash or underscore.

Also, your anchor element isn't being closed properly. Typically, links look like this: <a></a> or <a href="www.facebook.com">Follow Me on Facebook</a>

Your code should look as below:

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

Actually, no. That would still be removing the provided attributes. And it must be a dash in the name for the challenge to accept it.
