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". 

11 Herbs and Spices. I'm gone, ya'll.

People's minds were blown.


And everyone is giving props to the genius behind the gag. 


Everyone pretty much agreed that KFC won the whole damn internet.

Well played, KFC. Well played.
