Many writers took to Twitter to thank the Writers Guild of America for fighting for them during negotiations.

Negotiations between the Writers Guild of America and AMPTP studio alliance were down to the wire Monday night, going past the midnight deadline and ultimately resulting in a last-minute deal, which was reached around 1 a.m. 

The deal averted a strike that could have hit the state economy with a $200 million blow per week (the last Hollywood walkout in 2007-08 cost California an estimated $2.1 billion to $2.5 billion).

Writers involved and Hollywood at large appeared generally happy with the results. See some of their reactions below.
