If you’re reading this and have a Twitter account, you likely follow @fishstripes. Our site’s Twitter presence has grown exponentially over the last several years.
Despite typically lousy results from the Miami Marlins on the field, myself and the Fish Stripes staff find ways to keep things interesting. During games, we provide real-time highlights, analysis, reporting and debate topics. Outside of MLB action, you can count on numerous daily posts that feature the internet’s best Marlins content, stats that contextualize recent performance and flashbacks to notable moments/accomplishments from the franchise’s past, as well as video livestreams and Twitter Spaces voice chats. All earnest comments/questions receive responses and our direct messages are always open. For prospect-centric updates, check out @FishProspects. We have been doing all of that for free and will be keeping it that way.
However, Fish Stripes is also introducing a paid subscription plan. It gets you even more thorough Marlins coverage, priority access to giveaways and opportunities to appear on our platforms, and much more. The price is $2.99 per month, the cheapest rate that Twitter allowed me to set up.
