A TXT record, as the abbreviation implies, is a record, that contains information in human-readable form and not code. It may be created for a domain name or a subdomain for various purposes. Search engines like Yahoo, for instance, have different ways of making sure you are the owner of a particular domain and one of them is in fact by creating a TXT record with specific text which they provide and which you must use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is being employed by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. Needless to say, in this case the content of the record is going to be read by a robot, but it'll still be in human-readable form. A TXT record is additionally employed in case 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 information 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 as well, just like your business details, for instance.
