This is the content of the tweet.info.yml file.

    type: theme
    description: 'A twitter Bootstrap starter theme'
    core: 8.x
    base theme: false

    libraries:
      - tweet/bootstrap

This is the content of the tweet.libraries.yml file.

    bootstrap:
      version: 3.3.6
      css:
        theme:
          css/bootstrap.min.css: {}
          css/bootstrap-theme.min.css: {}

Change the tweet.info.yml file as follows.

name: 'tweet'
description: 'A twitter Bootstrap starter theme'
core: 8.x
type: theme
base theme: false

libraries:
  - 'tweet/bootstrap'

Put the following in the tweet.libraries.yml file.

bootstrap:
  version: 3.3.6
  css:
    theme:
      css/bootstrap.min.css: {}
      css/bootstrap-theme.min.css: {}
  js:
    js/bootstrap.min.js: {}
  dependencies:
    - core/jquery

Also, be sure you have a tweet.theme file in the same directory. This file is necessary for Drupal to recognize the directory contains a theme.

I needed a tweet.theme file. I grabbed it from the data files and pasted it into the directory. The book doesn't say to add a .theme file in the beginning of the corresponding chapter.
