I would give it one authority backlink initially and then add the other authority backlinks gradually.
If you just submit it, Google might be slow to crawl it, and if it doesn't have any backlinks, most of the pages might not even get indexed.

A couple of decent links from elsewhere is all you need.

Google probably already knows about your site. They have access to the domain registrar data. As to your question - get backlinks & twitter mentions.

So , is it safe to get links for new sites nowadays :)

FWIW, launched two sites over Memorial Day, submitted XML sitemaps for them, linked them to each other once, plus each had one link from one of my other sites, the usual FB and Twitter presences, and one was getting Google traffic within three days, is now ranking and fully indexed. We messed up the URLs on the other one, so that took longer, but was finally fully indexed and getting traffic last week. YMMV.
So my answer to your question is - both.
