Someone noticed that KFC only follows 11 people on Twitter. And it's a reference to the 11 herbs and spices in their original recipe.

The original recipe of 11 herbs and spices is rumored to be:

  1. ⅔ teaspoon salt
  2. ½ teaspoon thyme
  3. ½ teaspoon basil
  4. ⅓ teaspoon oregano
  5. 1 teaspoon celery salt
  6. 1 teaspoon black pepper
  7. 1 teaspoon dried mustard
  8. 4 teaspoons paprika
  9. 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  10. 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  11. 3 teaspoons white pepper

KFC's Twitter account follows the five Spice Girls: Geri Horner, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie C, Victoria Beckham. And six guys that are name Herb.

That makes 11 Herbs and Spices. Pretty clever.
