I switched to New Twitter and now I could not create new Lists. It shows the message "List Created!" every time I create one but the List drop down never shows it. I'd only 1 List built long time ago and hence have not exceeded the quota of 20 Lists / user. Any thoughts why this is happening?

Most likely you are not filling out the description.
Place some information in the description section and it should work.

On the form under the description box it states "Under 100 characters, optional" so I don't think you have to fill it out. – ChrisF Oct 8 '10 at 20:18
I just tested this. If I left Description blank, I saw List created, but no list. If I then created it again, this time filling in a short description, the list was created just fine. Perhaps they're not sure what optional means or maybe the 100 character limit is the optional part? – Rebecca Chernoff Oct 8 '10 at 21:21
It is a bug with the new interface. I tried it myself. Continuously creating a new list without filling out a description leads to a notification message but no new list. – phwd Oct 8 '10 at 21:23
