The 'Social Icons' are actually part of a special font called Font Awesome: http://fortawesome.github.io/Font-Awesome/

You need to read this just before those definitions:
/* Font Awesome uses the Unicode Private Use Area (PUA) to ensure screen
   readers do not read off random characters that represent icons */

Open in new window

They aren't images, they are 'font' characters.

I see, but what does this code do?
.fa-twitter:before {
  content: "\f099";
}
Thank you.

That's the font character for the Twitter icon.
