If you go to the profile of the account sending the tweets there's a drop down (the gear). The bottom option of that is to report the account for spam.

Having reported the account you can then block that account so you'll no longer see the spam posts.


You can also DM the @spam account. Of course this doesn't actually block them, but it alerts the authorities
