Mail and Twitter icons are doubling

When I put my mail and twitter Icon pictures on the contact page they doubled on me,but the phone icon is correct and it did not double the picture.

here is the html: <ul class="contact-info"> <li class="phone"><a href="tel:000-888-8888">000-888-8888</li> <li class="mail"><a href="mailto:danielsample@gmail.com">danielsample@gmail.com</li> <li class="twitter"><a href="http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?screen_name=daniel13rown">@daniel13rown</li> </ul> CSS:

.contact-info { list-style : none; padding: 0; margin: 0; font-size: 0.9em; }

.contact-info a { display: block; min-height: 20px; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size: 20px 20px; padding: 0 0 0 30px; }

.contact-info li.phone a { background-image: url('../img/phone.png'); }

.contact-info li.mail a { background-image: url('../img/mail.png'); }

.contact-info li.twitter a { background-image: url('../img/twitter.png'); }

If you typed the html the same way you did here, It's normal It's not working correctly, there are unclosed tags and others mistakes. Here is the way that should be written.

   <ul class="contact-info">
       <li class="phone"><a href="tel:000-888-888">000-888-888</a></li>
       <li class="email"><a href="mailto:danielsample@gmail.com">danielsample@gmail.com</a></li>
   </ul> 

<!--- and etc -->

Looks like you're missing your closing anchor tags on all three list items. Just need

</a>

before each of your

</li>

I know that, I took out the unclosed tags because it did not show up in the forum correctly the first time. In my code there are closed tags on every thing

html <ul class="contact-info"> <li class="phone"><a href="tel:000-888-8888">000-888-8888</li> <li class="mail"><a href="mailto:danielsample@gmail.com">danielsample@gmail.com</li> <li class="twitter"><a href="http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?screen_name=daniel13rown">@daniel13rown</li> </ul>

The code looks good, but it is still missing the closing </a>s. The code below I just copy and pasted from your post but added the </a> before all the closing </li>. It should work with those 3 added.

<ul class="contact-info"> <li class="phone"><a href="tel:000-888-8888">000-888-8888</a></li> <li class="mail"><a href="mailto:danielsample@gmail.com">danielsample@gmail.com</a></li> <li class="twitter"><a href="http://twitter.com/intent/tweet?screen_name=daniel13rown">@daniel13rown</a></li> </ul>
