If the problem was only stuffing values in GSettings, we'd probably
already have a Web Accounts panel by now. Load up a twitter application
such as Gwibber, and try setting it up to use a Twitter or Facebook

The problem is single sign-on, sharing of application API keys (when
possible), and making sure that the underlying components are set up for
things like OAuth.
