TXT is a DNS record, that contains info in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a certain domain name or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this kind of record is used to prove that you own a domain if you are trying to add it to a search engine or to some traffic analytics platform. Due to the fact that just the domain owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions as a verification of ownership for the firm offering the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that others will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your online messages arrive from and functions as verification that it is a trusted one. As there are no restrictions regarding the content of this kind of a record, you could also include any other info as well.
