Target call center employees have been busy answering a ton of phone calls this week.

The Minneapolis-based company announced via Twitter on Thursday it has tripled its call center support staff to handle all of the calls and shorten wait times.

This comes after a security breach that affects 40 million debit and credit card holders.

Target also says Red Card holders can go online to find answers to questions instead of calling the help line.
