I keep getting a syntax error. What am I doing wrong?

using_a_function.py
"""
This is importing a function named `tweet` from a file
    that we unfortunately don't have access to change.

You use it like so:
>>> tweet("Hello this is my tweet")

If the function cannot connect to Twitter,
    the function will raise a `CommunicationError`
If the message is too long,
    the function will raise a `MessageTooLongError`
"""
from twitter import (
    tweet,
    MessageTooLongError,
    CommunicationError,
)


message = input("What would you like to tweet?  ")
# Your code here

try:
    tweet(message)
except CommunicationError:
        print("You have a problem connecting to Twitter.")

except MessageTooLongError as err:
        print("The message is too long. {err}")
try:       
    except CommunicationError:
        print("An error has occurred trying to connect to Twitter!/n Please try again!")

Hi Luke

Delete this last block of code (the last 3 lines) and you should be good to go!

try:       
    except CommunicationError:
        print("An error has occurred trying to connect to Twitter!/n Please try again!")

Happy coding!
