There has been lots of content being provided on the twitter account,
and 6 months ago there was a group service for multiples to manage the
account. G+ didnt provide such functionality when it came out. So
there was no mechanism to add new managers. Again, if you knew there
was a problem, you could easily fix it by sending a notification to
the account or propose a third party service that solves the issue.
Clonning the account doesn't really makes a solution.
