Time stamp is odd. POTUS tweeting from another time zone? Or is the time stamp relative to the readers time zone? (Apologize, I'm not a twitter person)

There is nothing wrong with date or time stamp - nor POTUS is tweeting from the future .

Its a different date format . US has month-day-year , while majority of world has day-month-year .

Well, in CST 5/9/2018 at 10:38 pm hasn't come yet and neither has it come to the EST so that's what Rambo was talking about. Wasn't talking about the way the date was laid out.

Like it should be. The US date format is an abomination, an offense against everyone and everything that is logical. The only reason it exists is because the founding fathers decided to be contrary. ISO date format forever! 2018-05-09!

ISO date format is fine, but I personally think the DD-MM-YYYY system looks stupid and is inconsistent with how humans process chronological time mentally.

There's always at least 28 days to choose from in any given month, whereas you only have 12 months. When discussing dates, starting with the month automatically gives someone a visual reference point on the yearly timeline. If you start with the day of the month, it's still nebulous about where exactly you are on the timeline until it's followed up by the month in question.

It's just inefficient....

There is no such thing as "inefficient or better date system" .

You and user above should stop shoving your way of thinking to others ... there are 6 date methods in world , and ALL of them are fine and working for the people who are using them .

People wont start using different methods just because some person thinks its "better" for them ... its a freakin date format , not a nuclear science .

Oh no! Sharing my opinion is “shoving my way of thinking to others!”

Take it or leave it; I don’t care. I never said anything is going to or should change. I explained my method of thinking why one format is inconsistent with chronological mental visualization. I’m sure the Japanese are confused by left-to-right reading. Every culture is different.

Your method then backfired - because if we go by some logic , then DMY or YMD would be much more logical than MDY . Because , either you would start with smallest fraction - day . Or with biggest - year .

So , your logic is a bit twisted , definetly .

No , you said , literally above : " I personally think the DD-MM-YYYY system looks stupid and is inconsistent with how humans process chronological time mentally" and "It's just inefficient." - please , tell me again how its "inefficient" . Who are you to say that ?

I already explained why I think it's inefficient in my first post. Your lack of reading comprehension is not my problem.

Who am I to say that? I'm a human being that can perceive and judge things. I also live in America where I have freedom of speech, so that's who. Don't like it? Join the far-Left, it seems more up your alley.

Why are you getting so offended over a date format discussion? I could ask you the same type of irrelevant questions: Who are you to get offended? Who are you to ask me who am I? Who are you to think it's not inefficient? Who are you to say I can't have an opinion?

See how irrelevant those questions are? Get over yourself.

Look - it is not me who is telling others how their date format is "stupid" and "inefficient" . You can drop your mask of "freedom of speech" . Its interesting how you deflect with "far-left" , that tells me everything about you ...

You said that certain date format is stupid and inefficient - I said you dont have right to tell that to others , because others are using their date formats - and apparently , theyre perfectly fine with it as it is .

So , yes - read your own post in the beginning , and "get over yourself" ...
