I get None and an error!

Here's my code, Where I run it I got None for the first print and "no attribute goupdict" for the second print.

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 #Optional 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())

You have a typo in the last and first name line. The is an extra right-bracket ]:

^(?P<name>[-\w ]*,\s[-\w ]+)\t #last and first names
