Mysterious bar appears blocking company name in widget


I have created a twitter profile widget for my website and everything works great, except for this mysterious bar which appears above my user name,
thereby blocking my company name. Please note that this bar doesn’t appear on the test widget on the twitter site before I grab the source code, and neither am I editing the code in anyway once I apply it to my website. Strictly copy and paste.

Here’s my code:

<script src=""></script>
new TWTR.Widget({
  version: 2,
  type: 'profile',
  rpp: 1,
  interval: 30000,
  width: 250,
  height: 300,
  theme: {
    shell: {
      background: '#c9ccd1',
      color: '#4c679e'
    tweets: {
      background: '#ffffff',
      color: '#000000',
      links: '#4c679e'
  features: {
    scrollbar: false,
    loop: false,
    live: false,
    behavior: 'all'

Any ideas or suggested solutions would be appreciated. Thanks a lot.
