Why is utc_offset different from offset in name of time zone


#1

When retreving data about user I get data like this.
“utc_offset”:-14400,“time_zone”:“Eastern Time (US & Canada)”

In time zone area for profile you have:

(GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Is this because Daylight Saving Time in Europe?

My API is probably based on UTC +1, still not sure, because my account has Arizona selected for Time Zone (don’t know why). Currently my home time (Slovenia) has Daylight Saving Time, but I’m using API on Pacific Time (US & Canada) in USA.

Tnx,
Miha
