Such awesomeness I've been playing with this all morning

To get my Twitter feed to work I had to untick this setting and to log onto to my Twitter settings in a browser

Hi, there's a very little bug with RSS Feed. The time and date doesn't match the time zone. Which file should I edit to remove or change the reading of the date and time ?
Thanks

It's not an ez builder bug. It's an rss bug. Or better yet, lack of specification. Rss does not have a standard for date time formats. So most rss feeds use human readable custom formats. These are not easily parsed and sometimes bizarre things happen. So rss readers usually just display the pub date as a string, rather than parsing. Maybe I'll add a flag to the command to ignore reading the date.

Exactly, it's not a ez builder bug. . I test the same link RSS with my AIBO and i have the same hours and date (15 novembre 2020). Something else, I use french SR and TTS and it works very well. But when ez builder give hours, TTS say 10 hours 7 minutes and not 10 heures 7 minutes and i don't have this bug with Aibo. But it's not really important, all works fine.
Thanks
