Looks like a california 17 year old student has earned herself $20,000 for college thanks to a simple twitter. Amanda Russell was the lucky and creative winner of a contest sponsored by none other than Colonel Sander's KFC. Russell used all of the allotted 140 characters in her prize-winning twit, earning $142 per characther. She wrote:
"Hey Colonel! Your scholarship's the secret ingredient missing from my recipe for success! Got the grades, drive, just need cash!"Of course, it didn't hurt that she had a 3.9 GPA at her LongBeach highschool. She plans to major in biology and hopefully get to be a doctor or medical researcher. The article doesn't say if she'll be using any chickens in her field of research.
