How do I report media in Tweets?
Follow these instructions to report media:

What happens to sensitive media I report?
Twitter reviews reports of media flagged by users to determine if that media requires a warning message in order to comply with Twitter’s media policies. Please remember that by flagging media you are bringing it to the attention of the Twitter team. The flagged content will not automatically receive a warning message or be removed from the site.
