How is 'flash fiction' a distinctive genre?

***Flash Fiction*** is an umbrella term used to describe any fictional work of extreme brevity, including the *Six-Word Story*, *140-character stories* (also known as 'twitterature'), *the dribble* (50 words), *the drabble* (100 words), and *sudden fiction* (750 words). Is the genre significantly different from poetry and short stories, and, if so, what are its distinctive attributes?
