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.

The catch? Those 11 people are the five former members of The Spice Girls and six men named 'Herb'.

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.
