A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain address as a DNS record for one purpose or another. The most typical use of a TXT record is to add your website to a search engine or to an analytics platform, which provides info about the web traffic to your Internet site. Creating this type of a record may serve as confirmation that you are the Internet domain owner and they will supply the content that you need to include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to confirm that an email message is sent by the Internet domain owner and from a reliable server - this is the so-called SPF security, that prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out junk mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could add any other info which you want to be associated with your domain in a TXT record as well.
