Toggle Tweetbot Visibility

Summary: Hides Tweetbot if it’s shown, shows and activates it if it’s hidden.
Requires: Tweetbot
Install Location: ~/Library/Scripts/

Tweetbot 2.1 has a bug where setting the Global Show/Hide hotkey doesn’t always work. And, if the hotkey is set, Tweetbot crashes when it’s invoked. This script reimplements the hotkey’s functionality, and you can assign your same keyboard shortcut using FastScripts.
