Twin Spark and more

Can someone explain or post a link about the role of the small sparks in CF3 Twin Spark Engine(technical explanation)? I think its useless.... This is in my head for quite a while and I cant find any good explanation for this =/
Is it a market trick?

From what I've heard, it reduces the travel of the flame, resulting in a cleaner burn of the fuel.

The reason they're smaller plugs is down to available space.

That's layman's terms

The oldest Twinnies were TS for added power, both fired at the same time to add power. The most recent TS engined kept it for environmental reasons. The second small plug kind of acts as a unburnt gas residue destroyer.

in the old 8v engine it did wonders, but in the 16v I agree it's a useless gimmick
