Report fake Twitter accounts

To report a fake account on Twitter, you can follow these steps:

Visit the profile of the fake account you want to report.
Click the three dots (…) icon next to the Follow button on the account page.
Select "Report" from the drop-down menu.
Answer the prompts from Twitter, including whether you are reporting on behalf of yourself or someone else.
Choose the reason for the report and provide any additional information that can help Twitter determine that it is a fake account.
Submit the completed report

If the account is impersonating you or your brand, you or an authorized representative can also submit Twitter's impersonation webform.

Note that Twitter may request additional information from you to help with their investigation. Also, it may take some time for Twitter to review and take action on the reported account.

See Twitter's Help Center article "Report impersonation accounts" for more information.
