15 Tweets That Prove the Arch Is the Sassiest Monument Around

Posted By on Wed, Nov 1, 2017 at 7:24 AM


St. Louis' favorite monument always captures the eye, whether you're a first-time visitor or a local saying "there's the Arch" for the millionth time. And the Arch loves the attention: just check its Twitter account.

Yes, the Gateway Arch's official Twitter account (@GatewayArchSTL) is written in the first person, with a refreshing self-consciousness. Sure, the page tweets about Arch news and events happening on its grounds and around the city, but it also has some serious personality. And, might we say, a touch of sass.

While the Gateway Arch's tweeting style is not new, we felt it was about time that its spunk was rightfully recognized. Here's a look at some of the most recent examples, in no particular order, of when the Gateway Arch was totally extra. And to other national monuments, we'll say this: You'd better up your tweeting game.

1. That time the Gateway Arch made sure everyone knew the day was its birthday, Taylor Swift style.
2. When you're sexy and you know it:

3. When the Arch used its good looks in an effort to lure Amazon to St. Louis.
