Before Twitter was about self-promotion, memes and brands that say "bae," it was about sharing the mundane details of one's life -- like what you were eating for lunch.

In this way, Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-Tex.) is a throwback. On Tuesday, he provided his followers a brief reminder of simpler times when he tweeted his Whataburger order: No. 6, extra cheese, grilled onions and jalapenos (450 calories without the add-ons). He even asked his followers what their order was (#engagement). And politically, it's a good move to tie yourself to a Texas-owned company with a cult following.

Six hours after the tweet was posted, however, no one had responded yet.
