Edited to add :
NHK's NEWS WEB EASY
In Japanese, news articles with furigana, sound files, videos and pop up explanation boxes for some of the words, at least I think that's what they are. You can also choose a plain text page that shows the video and the article without the other extras.
I don't think there is an exclusive Twitter feed just for NEWS WEB EASY; instead it looks as if the NHKニュース (News) Twitter feed includes posts from NHKニュース, NHK NEWS WEB, and NHK NEWS WEB EASY.
NHK NEWS WEB: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/index.html (same link as NHKニュース)
Different Twitter account, appears to post just items from NHK NEWS WEB, not sure what the difference is between NHKニュース and NHK NEWS WEB, maybe NEWS WEB is 24/7?)
