KFC may be known for its fried chicken, but after this week, it should also be known for having one of the best Twitter accounts on the Internet.
On Thursday, Twitter user @edgette22 noticed that KFC’s official Twitter account only follows 11 people.
“Those 11 people? 5 Spice Girls and 6 guys named Herb,” he Tweeted. “11 Herbs & Spices. I need time to process this.”
Just to be sure this wasn’t some internet hoax, we checked it out and lo and behold: KFC only follows the five Spice Girls and six men named Herb.
While KFC has marketed its fried chicken as using a secret recipe of “11 herbs and spices” for years, it’s unclear how long this quiet joke has gone unnoticed.
Twitter was clearly amused by KFC’s subtle sense of humor.
Now seriously. Who’s going to get KFC’s social media manager a raise?
