In order to satisfy the requirement for the alternative to be on the same page I wonder if a pop-up on the same page containing only the twitter feeds with the other content aria-hidden would be a better solution.

An equivalent alternative here would be to provide a link to the feed on twitter.com itself. It means an extra click/tap, but users on small viewport would still be able to get to those tweets (just not directly embedded in the page itself).
