There really is no reason for a swivel. Using a snap to make changing baits easier is fine. If you have lures like a spoon or sometimes an in-line spinner that will give you a lot of line twist, a snap swivel can be good, but just a plain snap is better with a crank bait.

To echo some of the above; most use a snap to make changing baits easier.  I personally use  palomar knot. Some like to change the line tie split ring to an oval one when tying direct. The idea is that it won't rotate like a round split ring trapping your line in the gap.

Snap swivel is best for baits that rotate like an inline spinner.
