Does time move slower at the equator?

Asked by El_Cadejo (34219 points ) July 8th, 2014

I was recently watching a video about “What if the earth suddenly stopped spinning” . In the video the presenter talked about the speed the earth is moving at different latitudes on the planet. This got me thinking, if the earth is moving quicker at the equator shouldn’t time move more slowly a la Einsteins principles of relativity?
