KFC is selectively following 11 people on Twitter and one user was able to figure out its genuisness! Buzz60’s Djenane Beaulieu (@djenanebeaulieu) has the scoop.

KFC just won over the internet, and it’s all because of their strong social media game.

Faith Based Events

On Thursday, Twitter user @edgette22 realized KFC’s official Twitter account only follows 11 people: the five former members of Spice Girls, and six men named Herb. The only possible (and sneaky) reason? The fast food chain’s fried chicken recipe consists of 11 herbs and spices.

The recipe is rumored to be ⅔ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon thyme, ½ teaspoon basil, ⅓ teaspoon oregano, 1 teaspoon celery salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper, 1 teaspoon dried mustard, 4 teaspoons paprika, 2 teaspoons garlic salt, 1 teaspoon ground ginger and 3 teaspoons white pepper. And that makes 11. Let’s give a slow clap for the brand’s expert marketing technique.

One of the users that KFC follows, writer Herb Scribner, knew something was up a few days ago, tweeting: “So @KFC just followed me, five other people named Herb and … the Spice Girls. That’s cute.”
