A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that holds info in human-readable form and not code. It can be set up for a domain name or a subdomain for a number of purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for example, have different ways of making sure you're the owner of a certain domain and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text that they provide and that you need to use as the record value. The very same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that keep track of the traffic to your sites as well. Of course, in this situation 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 activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can shield them from being forged. In this case, the record contains info showing that a given electronic message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, like your business details, for example.
