Thanks Pascal for your help. Please excuse my ignorance as I'm still
learning JavaScript but how would I do this? My timezone is US Central
Time.


$(document).ready(function(){

        $.getJSON('http://twitter.com/status/user_timeline/benjuneauweb.json?
count=6&callback=?', function(data){
                $.each(data, function(index, item){
                        $('#twitter').append('<div class="tweet"><p>' + 
item.text.linkify()
+ '</p><p><strong>' + relative_time(item.created_at) + '</strong></p></
div>');
                });

        });

        function relative_time(time_value) {
          var values = time_value.split(" ");
          time_value = values[1] + " " + values[2] + ", " + values[5] + " " +
values[3];
          var parsed_date = Date.parse(time_value);
          var relative_to = (arguments.length > 1) ? arguments[1] : new
Date();
          var delta = parseInt((relative_to.getTime() - parsed_date) / 1000);
          delta = delta + (relative_to.getTimezoneOffset() * 60);

          var r = '';
          if (delta < 60) {
                r = 'a minute ago';
          } else if(delta < 120) {
                r = 'couple of minutes ago';
          } else if(delta < (45*60)) {
                r = (parseInt(delta / 60)).toString() + ' minutes ago';
          } else if(delta < (90*60)) {
                r = 'an hour ago';
          } else if(delta < (24*60*60)) {
                r = '' + (parseInt(delta / -3600)).toString() + ' hours ago';
          } else if(delta < (48*60*60)) {
                r = '1 day ago';
          } else {
                r = (parseInt(delta / 86400)).toString() + ' days ago';
          }

          return r;
        }

        String.prototype.linkify = function() {
                return 
this.replace(/[A-Za-z]+:\/\/[A-Za-z0-9-_]+\.[A-Za-z0-9-_:%&\?
\/.=]+/, function(m) {
                        return m.link(m);
                });
        };

});
