TXT is a DNS record, which contains data in human-readable form for external sources to obtain information about a particular domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this sort of record is employed to prove that you own a domain name in case you're trying to add it to an online search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. As just the domain address owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the business supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which helps to ensure that a particular email address won't be spoofed and that others will not receive junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your online messages come from and functions as validation that it is a trusted one. As there are no standards concerning the content of such a record, you can include any other info as well.
