Windows Phone 7 Marketplace adds YouTube, Twitter and more

They might not have been there at the start of day one, but by the end a number of “flagship” apps hit the Windows Phone 7 Marketplace.

Those who’ve picked up a new HTC, LG or Samsung device powered by Microsoft’s new operating system can now watch YouTube videos, tweet on the official Twitter app and chat with their mates via a Windows Live Messenger app.
