News in Slow Japanese
http://newsinslowjapanese.com/

Become a good listener of Japanese by listening to our interesting and fun news topics. Each week we discuss important news in simple, clear Japanese. We read it slowly to give you a chance to hear every word and we provide easy popup translations for not just the difficult words but whole phrases along with the readings of the Kanji. 試してみてね!

Edited to add :

NHK's NEWS WEB EASY
http://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/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ニュース: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/
Twitter: https://twitter.com/nhk_news


NHK NEWS WEB: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/index.html (same link as NHKニュース)
Twitter: https://twitter.com/nhk_NEWSWEB

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?)

Hello,

No app for News Web Easy that I know of :(

There are a couple of official apps for NHK: http://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/app/info/index_en.html

-NHK WORLD TV (to watch)
-NHK WORLD RADIO JAPAN (to listen)

If they are any use. I've only tried the radio app and it's actually news clips of varying lengths.
