Eliminate suspicious spacing in Twitter Widget WordPress


Please reference the footer on this page:

For some reason, the Twitter widget is being "pushed down" approximetely 40px or so with no explanation why. I would love to have this widget lined up with the other columns in the footer.

I placed the following code (generated from into the Wordpress "Text Widget" which I then inserted into my "Footer Sidebar".

<script src=""></script>
new TWTR.Widget({
version: 2,
type: 'profile',
rpp: 3,
interval: 30000,
width: 190,
height: 240,
theme: {
shell: {
background: '#31302f',
color: '#ffffff'
tweets: {
background: '#000000',
color: '#ffffff',
links: '#e6007b'
features: {
scrollbar: false,
loop: false,
live: false,
behavior: 'all'

Can you clarify exactly where I should try to enter that code? I entered it directly into style.css and clicked update file but that did not work. Any other suggestions?

rokfrd comments:

No, directly into the text widget. But I suspect what you're referring to is likely causing the spacing.

Arnav Joy comments:

use this path

combined.css is the css where you should write this code

see the screenshot
