Strange behavior when editing bfa_header_config.php

First of all thanks for a great theme and the wonderful customization options!

I have unfortunately run into a problem when editing the bfa_header_config.php and trying to include a twitter status.

I have followed the instructions given on the forum and I added the following below // End of title/description:

$logo_area .='<td rowspan="2" valign="middle" class="header-banner"><div id="jlotwit"><a href="http://twitter.com/jacoblo" title="Twitter - jacoblo" target="_blank"> ' . aktt_latest_tweet() . '</a></div></td>';

It pulls my last twitter, the jlotwit is shown but the actual text is completely misplaced. The strange is that if I don't use the aktt_latest_tweet function and just put in the phrase "test", it appears fine in the correct place. What am I doing wrong and how can I fix it?

The live example can be seen at www.jacoblo.se

That function is outputting something right away but we need something that just provides content but doesn't print it. $logo_area is just collecting the content of the logo area, not printing it. You'd need to capture the output of aktt_latest_tweet() first

PHP Code:
ob_start(); aktt_latest_tweet(); $latest_tweet ob_get_contents(); ob_end_clean();
$logo_area .='<td rowspan="2" valign="middle" class="header-banner"><div id="jlotwit"><a href="http://twitter.com/jacoblo" title="Twitter - jacoblo" target="_blank"> ' $latest_tweet '</a></div></td>'
