What's wrong with this tweet about the 'Stone Arch Bridge'?

A bit of an error from the U of M Alumni Association.

What's wrong with the tweet and the image above? There's something we can't quite put our finger on.

Oh that's right, wrong bridge!

The Saturday tweet by the University of Minnesota's Alumni Association celebrated the beauty that is Minneapolis' famous Stone Arch Bridge across the St. Croix ... HA! just joking, the Mississippi.

The only problem? It posted two pictures not of the Stone Arch, but of the 3rd Avenue Bridge.

The tweet has been deleted, but unfortunately for the U of M Alumni Association, we took a screenshot before it could do so as we have nothing better to do on Saturdays except look for thin excuses for clickbait content.

That's not to say the 3rd Avenue Bridge isn't lovely in its own way, but it doesn't quite compare to the Stone Arch.

Oh look, here's both of them in the same picture!

Sorry, U of M Alumni, we don't mean to make fun. Lord knows it's not like we never make errors on this site.
