Mr.PerfectI often hear people saying "me too",but some knowledgeable people say "I too" correct and not the former one.
In ordinary conversation -- which I believe is the only context in which either of these might be used -- you say Me too in all cases. Nevertheless, to be strictly correct, I too is sometimes, but not always, the technically correct form.

-- I like pizza.
Technically correct: -- I too.
Actual practice: -- Me too.

-- Sue invited me to her party.
Technically correct: -- Me too.
Actual practice: -- Me too.

It would be exceedingly difficult to find a speaker who does not always say Me too, but who says either I too or Me too based on the grammatical context.

"Me too" is the colloquial phrase, often used mistakenly, but used nonetheless.

["I love you." "Me too", meaning I love you, too, rather than I love me.]

I agree. I doubt I've ever said "I too" in my life, nor would I expect to hear anyone else say it.

I suppose it's because "Me too" is really an abbreviation of

(What you just said is true for) me too.

Plausible?

Technically both "Me too." and "I too." aren't gramatically correct, as they are sentence fragments. There is no verb in either of them.

Well I hope you never say them in that case! Emotion: smile

They're just adding to what was said before. (additions and remarks)
If you say, "I like pizza." I can say either; me too or I too.
