you can still make an arbitrary number of Pestermite
s, you just can't attack with them, but if you have some other means to take advantage of them then you can still win with the combo (say Purphoros, God of the Forge
You didn't say what Pithing Needle is naming so I assume it's naming the creature Splinter Twin is enchanting. In that case you can't activate the ability at all and so can't make an arbitrary number of Pestermite s

So there is no time between The end of my turn and the beginning of my opponent's upkeep to create tokens?

Well there actually is one, at the end step, when you must exile all of the tokens, there is a priority check between both player before passing the turn. At that priority if the Player controlling the enchanted Pestermite may activate the ability and the token created from it won't disappear until the beginning of the next end step.

At that priority if the Player controlling the enchanted Pestermite activate his ability, the token created from it won't disappear until the beginning of the next end step.

Pithing Needle is not good against Splinter Twin combo because you can't name the enchantment since it give the creature the ability and since they have multiple targets, you are only killing part of their combo. Torpor Orb is a better stick to throw in the wheels of the Twin combo
