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.
