What are advantage(s) of reading Cloudtrail or Config logs from S3>SNS>SQS over reading from S3 directly? Is it avoiding duplicate messages? Anything else?

The primary reason is speed. The SQS path lets us receive the message as soon as AWS posts it instead of polling the bucket every few minutes.
