Everyone’s on vacation right now except for Twitter spammers

Has anyone been noticing an abnormal amount of Twitter spam during the last two days? Both my personal account (@paulbalcerak) and work account (@KIRO7Seattle) have been getting spammed incessantly, leading me to click the (futile?) “report [username] for spam” button more frequently than usual.

I don’t know if this is just a new holiday tradition or related in some weird way to someone hacking Lady Gaga’s account the other day and tricking about 7,000 of her followers, but if you know anything about it, I’d love a heads up.
