HTML Introduction to HTML and CSS (2016) Adding a New Web Page Set up an HTML Document

Social icons won't show up on preview.

I'm unable to see social icons (twitter,linkedin.svg) files once I preview code, everything else shows up fine except the social icons. I'm using Atom as my text editor.

This is the html.index code....................(I have a folder name images that has the .svg files)

Check again if you don't get any *path errors

google chrome:: Open Developer Tools F12, Ctrl + Shift + I (pc). Cmd + Opt + I (mac) https://developers.google.com/web/tools/chrome-devtools/shortcuts

What error? (red alert)

images/twitter.svg Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 ()

Thats its. This, for example, will work fine.

a.linkedin {
  background-image: url('https://dummyimage.com/30/30/fff.jpg');
background-repeat: no-repeat;
} 

Codepen (later i will delete this codepen): https://codepen.io/siton/pen/rwqabL
