Why should I use this plugin?

Generally hits from twitter will show up in Google Analytics as “Direct Traffic” – which means you can’t measure the effectiveness of your Twitter profile. Tagging your traffic lets you measure the hits coming from Twitter effectively – see my original post on the subject for more information.
