Calls to multiple twitter api returns time related info in different
timestamp formats.

1st call is http://search.twitter.com/search.atom?result_type=popular&q=iphone
Timestamp for "published" data is "2010-12-30T07:05:45Z"

2nd call is 
Timestamp for "published" data is "2010-12-30T07:05:45+00:00"

3rd call is http://api.twitter.com/1/users/show.xml?screen_name=Skype
Timestamp for "created_at" data is "Tue Mar 27 10:48:31 +0000 2007"

I am wondering why different timestamp formats are used in responses
to API calls, though different formats may be desired for displaying
purposes of these timestamps. I am looking for a common timestamp
formatter but in vain.

I am using java 6 to make these calls.

Pls let me know how to resolve this. Or is it a bug?
