A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, that's associated with a domain as a DNS record for one purpose or other. The most frequent use of a TXT record is to add your website to an Internet search engine or to an analytics platform, that provides details about the traffic to your web site. Setting up such a record can serve as verification that you're the Internet domain owner and they'll supply the content you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another purpose of a TXT record is to validate that an e-mail message is sent by the domain address owner and from a trusted hosting server - this is the so-called SPF security, that prevents any electronic address created under your domain to be forged and unauthorized people to send unsolicited mail making it appear like it was mailed from your own mailbox. You could include any other information that you'd like to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
