"They planted a low-key genius bomb and it just went off"
Did you know that KFC only follows 11 people on Twitter? That may seem like a totally random number but, while we were wallowing here in 2017, KFC has been patiently waiting for us to catch up to 3017.
Some eagle-eyed internet sleuths realised why KFC only follows 11 people on Twitter and the reason will probably keep you up at night.
First of all, let's take a look at who KFC follows, shall we?
Here we have all the members of iconic Brit pop girl group, The Spice Girls. We also seem to have an over-representation of verified Twitter users named Herb. Hmm, interesting.
It's all pretty innocuous until you realise that KFC's original recipe famously includes "11 herbs and spices".

Those 11 people? 5 Spice Girls and 6 guys named Herb.
11 Herbs & Spices. I need time to process this.
11 Herbs and Spices. I'm gone, ya'll.
People's minds were blown.

the person that runs the KFC account needs a raise. I don't care how much they make now. GIVE THEM A RAISE.— Samantha O'Pumpkins (@sicklittlejag) October 19, 2017
