I am working on getting data from twitter APIs(twitter4j). One problem is that sometimes I get only timezone like 'Pacific Time (US & Canada)'. Is there some way to get countryname using this info. One way can be to trim the timezone string from Pacific Time (US & Canada) to US & Canada. Any other way?
A time zone extends from pole to pole in a stretch covering an entire 1/24th area of the planet, subject to adjustments for national convenience. The "US & Canada" is simply an indication that the locale is set for the zone where a specific set of rules apply for base time offset from GMT and when Daylight Savings start and end. As a determinant of national boundaries, it's pretty useless. I live in a state that spans 2 separate zones, myself, and for a while I crossed the zone boundary on a regular basis.
