It is unlikely they were monitoring his feed or even doing some thing like keyword monitoring (thats the job of the spooks) which means that a member of the public probably reported it. Once something like this (alleged bomb threat) is reported to them they do not have the luxury of being able to just ignore it no matter how credible they think it is. They have to investigate. You can tell that they did not think much of it by the fact they rang him beforehand.

Jasper Hamill seems to have an issue with the police doing their job.
