The restart is a direct free kick for the opponents or a penalty kick if the recipient was inside of his own penalty area. It is also a send off for the player who spit.

It is neither direct nor indirect. That said, a goal cannot be scored directly from a throw-in. The restart would be the same as if the score was directly from an indirect free kick. If the ball enters the opponent's goal then it's a goal kick for the opponents. If the ball enters the thrower's goal, then it's a corner kick for the opponents.
