What is the difference between purchasing Treasury bonds through Treasury Direct or my account with Fidelity? Is one better than the other? Thank you

Terry Says

The brokerage arm of Fidelity can purchase Treasury securities for you. But why?
I prefer to set up my own account at Treasury for individually owned bonds
But to buy them in an IRA, since the government doesn’t act as custodian,then use your Fidelity account.
