Looking at BuzzIt (Firefox extension) saw that at the core there is
nothing more than a JS file which uses gmail services to be able to
"buzz". It seems this will be rather easy to create on a widget.
I am still not a developer nor an expert on how to develop widgets in
maemo, but it seems that at the core is only a matter of use a file
like the following: http://jza.pastebin.com/TXKrxECE

At core I see the following:
var createtab =
' --%0D%0A['+shortURL+']%0D%0A-- [Sent.ViaBuzz.it]');
