KFC Only Follows 11 People On Twitter And The Reason Is Hilarious

But KFC's latest bit is more subtle.

The 11 Twitter accounts followed by KFC have been revealed, causing a frenzy among fans.

Take a second look and you might notice that five of them are the Spice Girls.

Though KFC did not keep the joke secret, it has still come as a big surprise to fans.

And 6 random dudes named Herb.


That's right. On their Twitter, KFC only follows the five Spice Girls members, and six guys named "Herb" - and one guy finally found out why.

The newspaper writer seems to be the only one of the 11 who has caught on so far.

All of this, makes for an excellent wordplay on Colonel Sanders' famous recipe, "blend of 11 herbs and spices".

There's usually no rhyme or reason to the people that corporate Twitter accounts follow on the social media website. But that's not all the fast food chicken giant is doing to try and connect to the masses, they have also stepped up their Twitter game.
