KFC's secret recipe revealed on Twitter

KFC's secret recipe revealed on Twitter”

KFC is very selective about who it follows on Twitter.

The fried chicken giant follows the accounts of Herb Scribner, Herb J. Wesson, Jr., Herb Waters, Herb Dean, Herb Sendek and Herb Alpert along with each account of the Spice Girls, Geri Horner, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Jayne Chisholm and Victoria Beckham.

Twitter users have gone insane over the "genius" of the KFC social media manager, demanding they be given a raise - or in one case, even offering them a job.

It was a play on its famously well-guarded secret recipe, which consists 11 herbs and spices.

In case you haven't figured this out yet, that's 11 "Herbs and Spices", in honor of KFC's secret fried chicken recipe.

"5 Spice Girls and 6 guys named Herb", the user wrote. I need time to process this. His tweet about it has been shared hundreds of thousands of times on the platform.

The little easter egg was planted "over a month ago", Mr Freddie Powell, creative director at advertising firm Wieden+Kennedy which dreamt up the campaign, told advertising trade publication Adweek. "I've made a huge mistake", the manager said.
