TXT is a DNS record, containing information in human-readable form for external sources to get information about a certain Internet domain or subdomain. In the most common scenario, this type of 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 site traffic analytics platform. Since just the domain name owner/administrator may add custom DNS records, the TXT record functions 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 ensures that an e-mail address won't be spoofed and that people will not get junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your online messages originate from and serves as verification that it's a dependable one. As there are no rules about the content of such a record, you could add any other information also.
