Why KFC only follows 11 people on Twitter

Why KFC only follows 11 people on Twitter

Thirdly, we love corporate Twitter accounts.

It seems 11 is also the magic number of individuals the fast food chain follows on Twitter.

Packers' Rodgers has collarbone surgery
Green Bay plans to start second-year quarterback Brett Hundley this week against the Saints. But the decision by the team Friday signals that's in all likelihood not a possibility.

KFC made the Twitter Easter egg live on September 18, so no one noticed the unique list of followers for more than a month, a representative from KFC PR AOR Edelman said via email.

KFC brands itself as making its chicken in a secret blend of 11 herbs and spices. But who are these 11 people? "Whoever is in charge of this needs a raise", tweeted another.

Consumer Reports' rankings of auto reliability
In April, Tesla models were downgraded after owners went months without an automatic braking system. These are the brand rankings and the number of spots each brand rose or fell from previous year .

Well, prepare to have your minds blown.

KFC spiced up the Web this week with a secret Twitter campaign.

The Apple Mac mini may not be dead after all
So the Mac mini will be refreshed, but it seems likely that won't happen until after the new Mac Pro launches. That Tim Cook took time out of his day to reply to a random email is somewhat eye-catching.

A user who goes by "Edge" tweeted Thursday that KFC is only following 11 users - the five former members of English pop girl group, the Spice Girls, and six men named Herb, including music legend Herb Alpert and Green Bay Packers cornerback Herb Waters. Naturally, this hasn't stopped people trying to crack the code - and this new Twitter development will definitely confuse people even more. Those would be the five Spice Girls - Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton - and five other men called Herb. Well, it does...but you know what we mean.
