Why would you? I also don't get what's going on.
It's the final conclusion of a data based puzzle ARG (think ILoveBes / Cicada / Unfiction) that's been going since 2012. Myself and others receive sections of obscure text like that and we need to figure out the message behind it. Sometimes it's a hint to another puzzle, other times it's a "cookie" (redeemable code or similar).

For anyone interested in how this was solved, you can find the solution here: https://www.halowaypoint.com/en-us/forums/db05ce78845f4120b062c50816008e5d/topics/eating-stale-cookies-during-a-firefight/227d0f2f-72d8-487d-b4c8-19022542c023/posts?page=4#post78

You're welcome to stick around and follow along, take part if you have any interest in puzzles or coding of any kind :)

morse code (2 = space, 1 = . , 0 = -), with a twitter hint (1 is upper case, 0 lower) for the character casing.
