Lately, restaurants have really been stepping up their social media game, hilariously responding to customer’s questions and posting outrageous memes. KFC has been playing their own game with their unique commercials featuring celebs dressing up as the Colonel, but on the sly, the fried-chicken joint has made a brilliant move on Twitter that has only recently been discovered.
You see, on the official KFC twitter account, the fast food restaurant is only following 11 people. And who are these lucky, awesome Twitter users blessed enough to be graced with KFC being their follower? 5 Spice Girls and 6 dudes named Herb. Yup, in a genius nod to their signature mix of ’11 herb and spices,’ KFC has gone above and beyond in their social media game, and people are finally taking notice.

Those 11 people? 5 Spice Girls and 6 guys named Herb.

People want the person whose idea it was to get a raise for their brilliance.
the person that runs the KFC account needs a raise. I don't care how much they make now. GIVE THEM A RAISE.— Samantha אריאלה דּוֹבָה (@sicklittlejag) October 19, 2017
Everyone even wants the guy that figured it out to get a raise too!
I don’t know who I’m more impressed with, @KFC for doing it or @edgette22 for noticing it https://t.co/avXAV1EkFm— Chris Espinosa (@cdespinosa) October 20, 2017
I mean… I don't know what @edgette22 does for a living… but he needs a raise too. Smartest man of the day.— Stephanie C. Bellew (@bellewsc) October 19, 2017
Even Wendy’s thought it was clever.
Just realized they weren't following back.— Wendy’s (@Wendys) October 20, 2017
Good joke though.
