Twenty Eleven or Two Thousand and Eleven

I think it’s fine to say the latter, and here’s why. You ready? Okay, here goes. Nobody called the year 2000 the year twenty or twenty hundred. It’s not cumbersome to say two thousand eleven or two thousand and eleven. I don’t mind if people say twenty eleven, and fortunately, they don’t mind if people say two thousand eleven. In 2100, I’m definitely going to switch to saying it like two separate two digit numbers because saying two thousand one hundred would be cumbersome and awkward.
