TTTTY means "Time to Talk to You." TTTTY rose to prominence when the phrase appeared in the 2001 Columbia Pictures film "Not Another Teen Movie" which parodies the teen-movie genre. TTTTY (in this case expressed as "T to the fourth, power Y") was used in the script to mock the overuse of abbreviations by teenagers to appear cool. TTTTY is usually only used as an ironic reference to the film to add comedy effect to a conversation.
