I am getting the following error and looking on web I don't see any resolution , please advise .

Basically I get the same error as you do, but only when refreshing the Logstash configuration or when stopping logstash. After a while the messages eventually go away.

Also, the Logstash Twitter plugin uses quite an indecent amount of CPU. I am not making heavy use of it, have just one filter that strips some fields I am not interested in, and nothing else.

Probably it's not one of's priorities to work on this plugin.
