A TXT record, as the abbreviation suggests, is a record, which holds data in human-readable form and not code. It may 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 and one of them is by creating a TXT record with unique text which they provide and which you need to use as the record value. Exactly the same verification method is used by some analytics platforms that monitor the traffic to your sites as well. Needless to say, 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 also employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails in order to protect them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains data showing that a particular digital message is sent from a trusted and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information as well, such as your company details, for instance.
