    Are you always getting this (like with each twitter post or just with some)? Do you have Free or “Pro” version? Any other things/networks are not working?

    Just with twitter, I am using a Free version.

    I first posted a twitter update yesterday and the link was working fine but today when I clicked on the link it would direct me to a blank page with the message above “Warning: mysql_connect() [function.mysql-connect]: Too many connections in /home/_shared/inc/functions.php on line 24”

    what i did was I switched the url shortener from the default to the wordpress built in shortener and it seems to be working fine with current twitter updates.

    I will keep updating as i go.

    So this error happens when it autoposts on Twitter or when you click the link in the Twitter post that already autoposted?

    When I clicked on the link in the Twitter post already autoposted.

    That is your database saying that it has too many connections and can not process the connection required for you to view the webpage. It’s like the server is saying “Im too busy, come back later”. One or more of your plugins or large volumes of users are causing the database to be overloaded.
    Have you cached the site with something like w3 total cache plugin?
    Check with your host to ensure the database settings are good and can not be tweaked any further.

    This issue has been resolved. I believe it had something to do with the url shortener service provided by the plugin.

    Thank you all,
