A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that keeps info in human-readable form and not code. It may be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a given domain name and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you should use as the record value. The same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. However, in this situation the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it will still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your emails in order to prevent them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains info showing that a certain digital message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, such as your company details, as an example.
