A TXT record is text in free, human-readable form, which is 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 online search engine or to an analytics platform, that offers details about the traffic to your site. Setting up this kind of a record works as confirmation that you are the domain name owner and they'll provide the content you should include as the value when you set up the record. Another use of a TXT record is to verify that an e-mail message is sent by the domain name owner and from a reliable web server - this is the so-called SPF protection, which prevents any electronic address set up under your domain name to be forged and unauthorized people to send out unsolicited mail making it appear like it was sent from your own mailbox. You could add any other info you want to be associated with your domain name in a TXT record as well.
