Research, research. While I have no doubt that it was meant to be a play on words, what with the triplets and some elements of moe and all that, the term holds more than one meaning.

Traditionally, a mitsudomoe is one of these:

It's also a colloquialism for a three-way struggle, which again, appears to be descriptive of the series.

Language is a very flexible thing.

On another note, I had a small laugh at the official website's "Ask questions to the triplets" section. Someone asked "What are your thoughts on global warming?" Hitoba had no idea how to answer it, and was left muttering something about Gachiranger.
