    Default KFC only follows 11 people on Twitter and it's genius

    An Easter egg that's been there the whole time is just getting noticed.

    KFC the fast food chicken joint only follows 11 people on Twitter. They follow all 5 Spice Girls and 11 guys named "Herb".
    They follow 11 Herbs and Spices.

    That's genius. One might say finger licking good marketing.

    That is pretty funny. I'm not sure I'd call it genius though. Does it lead to more people following them?

    I saw that reported online and thought it was pretty funny. I'm sure KFC must have some other Twitter accounts that follow other users for other purposes, but obviously they don't believe they need to do it through this account. The fact that the @KFC account has more than a million followers shows that not following others is not holding it back.

    Considering it became a viral news story? Yeah, it absolutely translated to more followers. Total genius move.
