KFC's brilliant Twitter secret uncovered

Fast food giant Kentucky Fried Chicken - better known by its acronym KFC - has left Twitter reeling after one user discovered its big social media secret.

Its other secret - just what they infuse their chicken with to make it so damn moreish - has long been uncovered.

The answer to that one is easy: the 11 herbs and spices. Yes, that's right - salt, thyme, basil, oregano, celery salt, black pepper, mustard, paprika, garlic salt, ginger and white pepper.

So perhaps just what Twitter user @edgette22 discovered shouldn't be such a surprise.

He's not making it up - this is genuinely what its Twitter 'following' list comprises of.

The five members of '90s girl group Spice Girls - Geri Horner, Melanie Brown, Emma Bunton, Melanie Chisholm and Victoria Beckham - and five other random dudes called Herb.

After some time waiting for a response from KFC, @edgette22 posted a tweet noting his impatience and finally got a very barbed response from the fast food chain - along with a hint at free food.
