US restaurant chain KFC has come to the attention of social media users - after it was revealed the company only follows 11 people on Twitter.

It is seen as a clever nod to its famous 11 herbs and spices recipe.

It was pointed out on Twitter and the tweet has been retweeted thousands of times.


KFC has more than 20,500 outlets in over 125 countries and territories around the world - including 40 in Ireland.
