I deliberately don't use "social" media, nor do I care about it. Also,
if a modern messenger (whatever you may label as such) is not supporting
fixed-width fonts, that's the messenger's fault, not something to be
remedied by changing GnuPG.

Any change requires design, development and testing. In the case of
GnuPG across platforms. That is why I consider your specific proposal a
complete waste of resources -- which is not meant as critique of you as
a person.
