TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to gain info about a certain domain name or subdomain. In the most common case, such a record is used to prove that you own a domain in case you are trying to add it to an online search engine or to some web traffic analytics platform. Since just the domain name owner/administrator can add custom DNS records, the TXT record serves as a proof of ownership for the company supplying the service. Another popular use for this type of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, that makes sure that an email address won't be spoofed and that people will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your online messages arrive from and serves as validation that it is a reliable one. Because there are no rules about the content of such a record, you can add any other info also.
