Hi there.

You need to create a twitter group.

twitters = re.search(r'''\s(@[\w]+)\n?''', string, re.X|re.M) remove \s you are no expecting a blank space there because the string you are trying to catch starts at @.. at the end add $ to mark the end of your string.

Cheers

Hello Pankaj This code will work

twitters = re.search(r'(?P<twitter>@[-\w\d]+)+?$', string, re.M)

Happy coding
