Why does KFC follow only these 11 people on Twitter? Mystery solved

Secondly, we love KFC - because really, is there anyone who doesn't love KFC?

However, the one thing that raises some suspicion about the American fast food chain's official Twitter account is that they only follow 11 people.

The account also follows all five members of the Spice Girls - Geri Horner, Mel B, Melanie C, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham.

"Basically @kfc wins Twitter!" "To whomever runs the KFC Twitter account and thought of this". Of the lucky 11, five are former Spice Girls and the other six are men named Herb, including Green Bay Packers player Herb Waters. However, we can confirm the recipe doesn't really include five Spice Girls and few Herbs.

The limited number of accounts has now been shown to be an homage to the restaurant chain's famous "eleven herbs and spices" chicken recipe. A genius marketing play-up on Colonel Sanders' original secret recipe!

It was supposedly revealed to the public past year after a nephew of KFC's founder, Colonel Sanders, found a recipe for the mix in an old scrapbook belonging to the Colonel's second wife.
