KFC Only Follows 11 People On Twitter But It’s Pure Genius

KFC only follows 11 people on Twitter and at first look, the list is random. Why did the Colonel choose those people. But then you’ll realize that the only accounts it follows are the Spice Girls and six gentlemen named Herb.

The fast food fried chicken restaurant prides itself on its 11 secret herbs and spices.

Well played, KFC….well played!

Jayson Weidel To Hide Original Disney Themed Artwork At Disneyland For Park Attendees To Find

Weidel-Lilo-Stitch-72

Jayson Weidel has a huge surprise in store for anyone attending Disneyland in Anaheim, California this weekend (Either Friday May 2, 2014 or Saturday May 3, 2014). The popular artist is going to hide Disney themed original art in specially marked envelopes throughout the park and tweet clues about their whereabouts.

Jayson has created a bunch of awesome sketches such as Lilo and Stitch, Olaf, Donald Duck, Winnie The Pooh, Goofy and more for the seekers to find. Weidel will take a photo of the general area or landmark and provide a hint as to where the sketch is located.

All of these illustrations are on high end watercolor paper. The images measure roughly 8” x 6” and are drawn in non-photo blue and mechanical pencil. The sketches are all signed and stamped along with instructions on how to play the game (for those who find them with out knowing and want to find more).

Interested people online or in the park can follow Jayson on twitter at planet_pulp or follow the hashtags #Disneyland, #Disney and #HiddenMickey.

Once a drawing is located Jayson simply requests that the lucky recipient tweet him back with a reply as to what drawing they located and to take a photo with them and the drawing so that Weidel can re-tweet the image.

I love the idea of this and hope that the experiment is a huge success! Who doesn’t like searching for buried treasure especially when the booty is beautiful original art. Hats off (Mouse Ears) to Jayson for this clever, fun and innovative experience!

Stephen King Joins Twitter

b683f7509ec792c3e481ead332940cdc

Novelist Stephen King has joined Twitter. The best-selling horror writer from Bangor, Maine joined the social networking site on Friday afternoon. 

The first tweet from @StephenKing was rather innocuous:

“My first tweet. No longer a virgin. Be gentle!” he wrote late Friday afternoon.

He followed that up an hour or so later with, “On Twitter at last, and can’t think of a thing to say. Some writer I turned out to be.”

In an hour, he had more than 30,000 followers. By midnight, he had nearly 95,000 followers. His first tweet was retweeted more than 2,000 times in a matter of minutes.

On Twitter, King showed family loyalty among those whose tweets he’s following. He signed up to follow his wife, Tabitha King, son Owen King and his other son who writes under the name Joe Hill. He’s also following his daughter, Reverend Naomi King, a Unitarian teacher.
