Between going to SunTrust tonight and listening to Atlanta United driving home, we clearly are entering a great new era of ATL sports!— bud006 (@bud006) April 1, 2017
A great era indeed.

The only time you'll ever cheer against Clint Dempsey— Connor Squires (@Csquiresuno) April 1, 2017
Unless we meet again...
Dempsey is playing coo coo bananas out of his mind.— Dakota Sillyman (@TheSillyman) April 1, 2017
Dempsey has so much swag. Not in the 2010s way, but like true swagger— Dale Harrell (@daleh18) April 1, 2017
The Dempsey substitution is countered with Almirón. GAME ON!— Richard Brockman (@BrockmanRichard) April 1, 2017
Let's see what #ThePlaymaker can do for us tonight. Let's go Miggy Almiron.— Johannes Schneider (@jocoolwu) April 1, 2017
I liked the suggestion of ‘Miggy’ for Almirón. Hopefully he’ll be as amazing on offense as the other.
Do it for I-85 boys @ATLUTD #SEAvATL— James W. Beal (@JamesWellington) April 1, 2017
For I-85! Seriously. We could use some joy to cope with the ensuing traffic.
It's more fun when @ATLUTD wins by like 6 goals— Jake Tupper (@J_tup20) April 1, 2017
More goals are always fun, but I’ll take a hard fought battle every now and then.
Praying for a point. #ATLUTD— Paul Probably ☕️ (@feartheshako) April 1, 2017

And the ref with the tuck and roll of the night!! #SEAvATL— Jason ⭐️ (@jasonlonglaughs) April 1, 2017
I see the ref likes to get in on the action... on his ass! #SEAvATL— Mooneclipser#TeamAsh (@JaneGrafham) April 1, 2017
The ref’s tumble was surely hilarious. Highlight of the match.

Way to steal a point in Seattle #ATLUTD— Nu (@PleighboiNu) April 1, 2017
#ATLUTD stood toe-to-toe with Seattle tonight without Martinez. That's not too shabby.— William McFadden (@willmcfadden) April 1, 2017
@Longshoe @929TheGame @AdamDSchick It must have been hard playing in front of so few fans, but they persevered.— ATLGreg1 (@ATLGreg1) April 1, 2017
I don’t quite know how they managed to play in front of so few either. :)
Although the match ended in a draw, United fought and defended when it counted. The fans enjoyed a thriller against the Sounders and gave us some quality tweets in return. Any other fun reactions? Post below!
