I've been through the video and typed out the code in Workspaces. When I attempt to compile Example it keeps on giving me an errors. One of the errors is about not being able to find getHashTags() in treet. Is there a line of code that I am missing within the Treet class, or is there something else that I'm missing?

I appreciate all of the help,

Hey Steve,

Can you paste the code that you are trying so I can take a look?
