Some people refer to the new year as "two thousand and ten," and other people refer to the new year as "twenty-ten." In a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll 69% responded "two thousand and ten," with 29% choosing "twenty ten." CNN affiliate WCAX hit the streets for an unscientific poll. How about you? Are you more likely to say "two thousand and ten" or "twenty ten?

2010 Twenty Ten it's easier in this fast talk world
Two-oh-one-oh. More work, but it's snappy.
Twenty ten I believe will be most common, other than that it will be the year of voter revolution and on that one, I am not sure how to pronounce it other than bring it on.
I say twenty ten because I find it to be a modern way. And we are modernixing so I believe that it fits.
Repeating my original thought, I believe it is more grammatically proper to state "two thousand ten" rather then "two thousand AND ten".................just an observation, Anderson.
Letter 0 – number 10. (oh-ten)
