TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to obtain info about a specific domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this kind of record is employed to prove that you own a domain if you're trying to add it to a search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Since only the Internet domain owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the company offering the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that a particular email address won't be spoofed and that others will not get unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your digital messages arrive from and functions as proof that it's a trusted one. Since there are no standards regarding the content of this type of a record, you can add any other info as well.
