It can’t be easy to manage all social media for one of the biggest fast food chains in the world…
…but whoever KFC employ for theirs, is a genius.
‘@edgette22’ on Twitter noticed that the chain only followed 11 people. And like many of us, he wondered just who might have made the cut in this small, exclusive group. First he found that they follow all five members of the Spice Girls:
The other six happen to be all gentlemen named Herb…
In case you haven’t got it yet, KFC follow 11 herbs and spices on Twitter.
.@KFC follows 11 people.
Those 11 people? 5 Spice Girls and 6 guys named Herb.
11 Herbs & Spices. I need time to process this.

As soon as people caught wind of this, Twitter went wild with praise of KFC’s social media team.

the person that runs the KFC account needs a raise. I don't care how much they make now. GIVE THEM A RAISE.

Indeed it appears that they have won the internet. We’re not sure how long they’ve been following these 11, but boy has it finally paid off.
