A TXT record, as the abbreviation indicates, is a record, which holds data in human-readable form and not code. It could be created for a domain or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of confirming you are the owner of a certain domain name and one of them is actually by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and that you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your websites as well. However, in this case the content of the record will be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is furthermore used if you enable the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails 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 trusted and authorized mail server. You may use a TXT record for any other information also, just like your company details, for example.
