thats true... should be addressed.

What has happened to Simones "fluido" effort? Picking this up again
might be a good chance

Directmemory does twitter, and Apache Struts does Twitter and G+:!/TheApacheStruts

Actually I like the utilizing of Struts very much.

Automatically on G+ is not possible imho. We would need to create +1
buttons, and people can share a page on G+.
Twitter might be possible, but when should it update? I mean, what
hook could we use?

The other projects I know or have heard of are doing all the stuff
manually (specifically a few volunteers of the PMC do)
