As you know, a day is 24 hours. In our daily conversations, whether it is eight in the morning or eight in the evening, we always say eight. So we don't say it's twenty. This is true in everyday conversation. However, in official speeches, for example, on the radio, television, news and similar mediums, the hour will be said, while the evening is called twenty, and the morning is called eight. We speak over 12 hours in daily conversations, but in formal conversations it is spoken over 24 hours and numbers after 12 are also used.
