Using diagrammatic pictures of tensor contractions, we consider a Hopf algebra twisted by an element
corresponding to a Hopf algebra morphism . We show that this Hopf algebra is quasitriangular with the universal -matrix coming from when , generalizing the quantum double construction which corresponds to the case .
