No idea how to get more than one twitter handle without using findall() instead of search method.

I just don't know what to do, spent about 1 hour on this and I cant figure out a way to do it using search method.

import re

string = '''Love, Kenneth, kenneth+challenge@teamtreehouse.com, 555-555-5555, @kennethlove
Chalkley, Andrew, andrew@teamtreehouse.co.uk, 555-555-5556, @chalkers
McFarland, Dave, dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com, 555-555-5557, @davemcfarland
Kesten, Joy, joy@teamtreehouse.com, 555-555-5558, @joykesten'''

contacts = re.search(r'''
    (?P<email>[-\w\d.+]+@[-\w\d.]+),\s  #email
    (?P<phone>\(?\d{3}\)?\s?-?\d{3}-\d{4})   #phone
''',string, re.X)

twitters = re.search(r'''
''',string, re.X|re.M)

You are very close. Your current group includes a leading space before the @ sign. Remove the space and it will pass.

The challenge is not asking you to find all the Twitter handles with a single search. If you did want all of the Twitter handles, findall() would be the correct choice.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!
