- Many were sceptical about the exercises:
- — Abbie Smith (@DigitalAbbie)Tue, Jun 30 2015 07:34:45Freaking out about this #999exercise - what if there's a real terror threat and they don't take it seriously, thinking it's the fake one! 😫

- Some took the emergency responses lightly:
- — James Farmer (@JamesFarmer87)Tue, Jun 30 2015 11:09:29Damn. Looks like I've missed out on tickets for Secret Cinema's new Terrorism special today. They always sell out so quick. #999exercise
- Others discussed social media's role in emergency situations:
- — Jules Mattsson (@julesmattsson)Tue, Jun 30 2015 12:36:04How long before I find myself looking at #999exercise footage in the future being passed off as something else entirely?
- Many praised the organisations taking part:
