Default Crimping wires together

I have 2 20 ga wires going to the same connection. Is it an acceptable practise to crimp them both into the same terminal?

Hereís a link to Bobís notes at the Aero Electric Connection. Hopefully this is helpful. You should be fine with 2 wires to a single connection.
