How many times you sent any content to the google plus page?

You are welcome to contribute naturally.

Where you been those 6 months as well? You keep using the account
innactivity as my problem when is clearly a two way street. you didnt
provided or interact with the account as I have search for a post from
you on the account wall and found none, in 6 months.

So you have a big grief for Google plus for not providing content, and
twitter has content and you also have a problem with it. I am sorry
but please make up your mind what is the problem you saw, and why you
never attempt to fix this by contributing to it?

 The documentation for the accounts have been open for years. The way
it was structured was open as well. These documentation hasnt gone
away you are free to research and follow up on it. Is not my
responsability to make people research it as they become PPMC. Like
you said, social networks should be natural.

I did address some issues that need to be fixed before moving them to
PPMC control, you have also skip those discussions without an answer.
These accounts will continue to work, with or without your permission.
I am not sure what make you think that you can say what is official or
not more than I do. Many people have shown their concern with
duplicating efforts as a bad idea and you have simply not address
that. You rather clone the accounts than work with them.

So far I am working with new tools like grouptweet to solve the
problem of interaction with  followers. You can also help looking for
that solution instead of promoting your own accounts you created
overnight, that is NOT a solution.
