In this paper we study the properties of Drinfeld's twisting for finite-dimensional Hopf
algebras. We determine how the integral of the dual to a unimodular Hopf algebra H
changes under twisting of H. We show that the classes of cosemisimple unimodular,
cosemisimple involutive, cosemisimple quasitriangular finite-dimensional Hopf algebras
are stable under twisting. We also prove the cosemisimplicity of a coalgebra obtained by
twisting of a cosemisimple unimodular Hopf algebra by two different twists on two sides
