TXT is a DNS record, which contains information in human-readable form for external sources to get information regarding a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common situation, this type of record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you're trying to add it to an Internet search engine or to some site traffic analytics platform. Since only the Internet domain owner/administrator is able to add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a verification of ownership for the firm providing the service. Another popular use for this kind of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which makes sure that an email address won't be spoofed and that people will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains info about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and serves as validation that it's a dependable one. Because there are no standards regarding the content of this kind of a record, you could also include any other information also.
