I am curious on how www.gigaom.com is able to callout the summary data of their articles. In addition I am trying to figure out how the summary autoposts when you select the tweet this button and the author's twitter gets tweeted as well.

I suspect the latter is available via twitter cards, but how can I get the summary data to show before the post content. A custom field? Micro-data?

Here are two examples of what I am talking about...

Any feedback is appreciated.

    How would we know?.. :) My first guess would be they are simply using excerpts for it, but can be done in myriad ways. – Rarst Sep 11 '13 at 22:50
  • Thanks for taking the time to respond. The summary isnt an excerpt of the article in this case. – Cecily Sep 11 '13 at 23:32
